When I buy a new clay to test out, I like to make test pieces to see how my various colors and glaze will look. It's nice to have a piece that gives me information, as well as manages to be cute and functional!
Handmade, thrown translucent porcelain cup with painted alternating rainbow and black stripes and carved sgraffito lines.
Inside is glazed with a food safe clear glaze.
Outside is also clear glazed on the top third or so, and the rest is left matte.
*** This piece is discounted because some of the black underglaze has chipped away (probably from being applied to thickly) as well as the fact that the carved dashes are somewhat rough if you brush up against them the wrong way. But the piece is still fully functional! ****
