10 oz Blue Lake Superior Cup
Important: This is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
These are beautifully glazed stoneware cups which hold 8 - 10 ounces. These cups have been dipped in blue glaze.
A cappuccino or café americano fits well in these cups!
Dimensions: Approximately 7 x10 cm (2.75 x 4")
It is made with a lead-free, food-safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each cup is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the cup to give it a better finish and create a bottom rim. Every cup goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the pottery is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the cup and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire, the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item. Once cooled, the bottom is sanded for a smooth finish.
