Elisa Bartels modern black pottery // Small cup

"A unique ceramic cup, smooth to touch and lovely to hold. I handcrafted this small cup from Australian clay, placed leaves on the surface and then black fired it for a modern, minimalist look. It is slipcast.

Perfect as a coffee cup, espresso cup, shot glass or a small food bowl, all my black fired pieces are 100% food safe. It would also look beautiful as part of a mantelpiece or sideboard display, or to create the mood with a tealight candle. I love using mine to store jewellery and trinkets"!

FEATURES:
- Handmade with slight variations. A true one-of-a-kind piece!
- Black fired from Australian porcelain.
- 100% food safe and lead free.
- Hand wash only.

Height: 5cm
Diameter: 7cm
Capacity: 100ml (3.3oz)

NOTE: This listing is for one cup.

THE PROCESS:

Porcelain and stoneware are natural materials and requires skill to understand how the material reacts (eg. allowing for shrinkage when firing the product up to 1280 degrees Celsius). My ceramic pieces are the result of accumulated experience in working with clay.

The process of black firing traps carbon within the clay to produce a sooty, matte black finish. The result is modern and minimalist.
