Wheel thrown ceramic stoneware pottery by GemFOX
Glazed in a speckled satin black outside and glossy berry purple inside and under the foot. gemFOX 2012 signature barely visibile under the glaze.
Approx. 6-1/8" tall. The tulip-shaped one is 2-1/2" in diameter at the rim, the flared one is 3-1/8" in diameter at the rim.
Food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe. Treat carefully as you would fine china.
Thrown freestyle by hand on the wheel without use of a mold, casting, guide, or ruler, so they will vary in size, shape, and proportion.
Lightweight, thin walled. North Carolina clay that is between stoneware and porcelain, so texture is smooth and fine yet earthy and strong. Painted with non-commercial glazes formulated at my school and fired to ~2400 degrees Fahrenheit for a vitrified watertight finish.
Humbly handmade by me, Gem, in Tampa Bay, FL USA.
Imperfections are part of the nature and charm of handmade work.
