L3"x W3"x H2.75"

This cup is finished with a Japanese glaze called Shino. This is a carbon trap glaze, meaning the surface or glass traps the carbon rich environment of the kiln, giving it the variety of green colors. This piece also has wood ash that is placed on the tumbler as it is loaded into the kiln. This piece was fired for a total of 40 hours in a gas kiln. It is finished with 23k gold leaf inlaid into the shell imprints.

It is fired on its side on seashells. A secondary clay catcher, unique to each piece, collects the runny glaze and is discarded after the firing. Residue from the seashells and catcher are sanded out and the final glaze is shaped into a seashell pattern.
