Libby Ballard Dinky Handled Coffee Cup (Hazy Skyline) - 200ml (7oz)
Hand Thrown Dinky Handled Coffee Cup
The interior of this Dinky Handled Coffee Cup is covered in a white glaze which also covers half the exterior of the cup. The cup is then dipped bottom first into the hazy skyline glaze, enough to allow it to overlap on the white glaze.
Each piece is hand-thrown on my potter’s wheel in my garden studio in Wiltshire. It starts from a ball of clay that is thrown on to the wheel and then the shape is formed by hand. The following day your piece is trimmed and left to slowly dry over the following week. When dry your piece is fired to bisque ware at 1000 degrees and left to cool. All my glazes are mixed up from dry ingredients to my own unique glazes. When the bisque ware is removed from the kiln I then apply the glaze from pouring and dipping the piece. The base is then wiped clean of any glaze and put into the kiln for its final firing to 1260 degrees. Once cooled I unload your piece from the kiln and it is carefully wrapped in paper bubble wrap, tissue paper and placed into an eco friendly box protected with corn-starch loose fill. I try and keep all packaging to a minimum but wrap it safely and as kind to the environment as possible. They are then safe to travel to their new homes.
