8 oz Blue Tumblers
Dimensions: Height 8 cm, Diameter 8 cm (3"x3")
Capacity approximately 8 ounces.
Description: Ceramic wheel thrown goblet made with white stoneware clay and glazed with floating blue glaze. The interior is lined with a clear glaze. These tumblers have the image of Lake Superior etched into them.
Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
It is made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each tumbler is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the goblet to give it a better finish and create a bottom rim. Every tumbler goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the goblet is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the tumbler 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.
