Porcelain Fiddlefern Cups on Fiddlefern Tray
Ceramic Tea Set
Created by Carol Barclay
Each of the two hand-thrown cups of high-fired porcelain is embellished on the side with delicate fiddleheads nestling in a groove, and a pair of porcelain fiddleheads curve to form a lush handle. The smooth rim of each cup is a coral pink and the fiddleheads are glazed in a pale aqua with very tiny violet dots. The clear glaze is glossy and elegant to the touch. Each cup has a coral pink textured ring to rest within on the porcelain tray. The slab-built tray is somewhat triangular in shape, with detailed fiddleheads forming the rim and creating a stunning frame for the cups. These three pieces are an elegant presentation and would be a significant and beautifully symbolic gift for a wedding or an anniversary. Although these pieces can be machine-washed, hand washing is recommended.
