Ceramic Pottery Penguin & Red Balloon Cup Or Vase

Pottery Cup - Handmade Penguins & Red Balloons Ceramic Vase - Wheel Thrown Tumbler for Hot, Cold Beverage or Flowers - Children Nursery Gift
Oh MY!!
These 3 little guys have always wanted to "FLY" and now they are getting their chance!! They have gotten a hold of some big Red Balloons and are lifting off into the stratosphere! Well, all but one, who's looking a wee bit pensive and confused about the whole situation because his Balloon is losing air fast and is planted firmly on the ground! Maybe one of his friends will reach down, grab his flipper and Share a ride!! Weeeeeeeeeeee....
:)

♥ Handmade from the Earth with LOVE just for You!™ ♥
*´♥.•NOTE~ The clay "walls" of this cup are very thick, thus rendering it totally useful for HOT drinks such as Tea, Coffee or Yummy Hot Cocoa....YAY!! The Last Photo shows a Very Similar Cup I made with Flowers in it so you can see how it looks as a Vase, isn't it Awesome....????

This wheel thrown cup measures about 3 3/4" tall and is 3 1/2" in diameter. It holds a Generous 12 ounces of your favorite liquid or a quite a few short stemmed flowers if you are using it as a vase!

The cup has been slightly "squared" while the clay was still wet in order to delight your hands and create fun "flat-ish" sides for me to paint on these 3 Fabulous Penguins and their 3 Big, Gorgeous Red Balloons! The inside of the cup is the same saturated Red as the balloons, but I left the bottom white and painted on my signature black swirly. I titled it "FLY", signed and dated it on the underside, applied 2 coats of clear glaze to the inside and outside of the mug, and then fired it again to cone 06.

*´♥.•NOTE ~ Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are NOT a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This cup will be a unique and wondrous gift for any penguin lover, or folks who love to "FLY" whether physically or just dreaming about it in front of a warm fire this winter! And the best thing about this cup.....it can also be used as a very cool vase!
TWO. TOO. 2 pieces of pottery in ONE! YAY!!
