Blue Stripe Thumb Cup

35.00

I've been making these thumb indent cups for 20 years and I never tire of making them! My gently off-round cylinder cups are made in porcelain on the potter's wheel. When the cups are still damp I use my thumb and the heel of my hand to make indentations in one or two spots. Usually the main indentation is on the 'front' (where the color/pattern is placed) and there might be a smaller thumb imprint elsewhere. This thumb cup is finished with a soft, satin clear glaze and has a gently squared line and spot of matt blue/green glaze. Drinking from these cups is a lovely, intimate experience as the rims are soft and rounded to comfortably fit the mouth and holding them feels like holding another's hand...

These cups are durable and user-friendly for all temperatures but take care when using them for hot liquids as they will be hot to the touch! Dimensions: 3.25" diam x 3.25" h (about 8-10 oz).

Since it can be challenging to accurately represent the color and surface texture of handmade ceramics, the piece you receive may vary slightly from the images.
