Black Pinch Pot Cups
Set of 2 handcrafted black ceramic pinch pot cups ideal for drinking from. Choose your favourite set for tea, coffee or anything else you may fancy.
Each one of these pinch pot cups is unique. Each piece reveals every movement made, every pressure applied, carrying in it the marks of its maker.
They are made with low firing red clay to which red terra sigillata is applied and burnished to give it a glossy finish. This technique seals the earth, and can thus function like a glaze. It is considered as the original glazing technique, before glazes appeared. The cups are fired in very low oxygen atmosphere (reduction), thus turning black. There are occasional flashes of grey-silver on some of them.
Dimensions: diameter: 6-10cm, height: 8.5cm
