Tropical Leaf Tumbler 3

Ceramic Glasses & Tumbler

Created by Beth Hatlen Elliott
Tropical leaves wrap this illustrated tumbler. Wheel thrown porcelain is painted with underglaze and carved using a technique called sgraffito. The interior of the tumbler and lip are glazed while the exterior is left unglazed and hand-sanded to an eggshell finish. The hardness of the fired clay contrasts with the distinct texture of the maker's tool marks, begging to be touched.

This tumbler holds 14 fluid ounces. While it is technically dishwasher and microwave safe, it is always best to hand wash handmade pottery.
