Wheel-thrown dark brown clay goblet with hand painted rabbit, moon, lily of the valley and leafy background with stars.
Inside is glazed with a food safe, clear glaze.
Outside is unglazed and matte, and feels like smooth stone. It is sealed with a product called Liquid Quartz, which is a food safe sealant designed specifically for ceramic that keeps the outside water tight and stain resistant.
*** This piece is discounted because the interior floor of the piece was pushed too hard while the stem was being added, which resulted in it caving outward into the inside of the cup. This doesn't cause any functional or safety issues, but is just a little weird. The main issue and reason for discount is that a crack developed during the kiln firings where the stem meets the cup. My estimate is this meeting joint was trimmed too thin, where it should have had extra clay at that area to reinforce the joint. This has created a weak point on the piece, so extra care should be taken to avoid wacking it against a hard surface, or dropping it. ***

This piece is food safe. It would typically be microwave and dishwasher safe, but I would highly recommend giving it extra care than you would normally (due to the flaw mentioned above) and avoid anything that may be rough on this piece, such as dramatic temperature changes or a potentially rough dishwasher.
