Stoneware Tumbler with Sprigs

Several months ago I threw a series of small tumblers/tea bowls from this wonderful stoneware Toas Red clay from Texas Pottery Supply.  I brushed white slip on the outside, and added sprigs of clay to form this flower.

Then they sat on my greenware shelf for quite a while. Finally I bisque fired them and they sat even longer. I've been busy with college and haven't found time to glaze and fire them until this past weekend. 

This is one from that batch.  There is twinge of purplish/pink tint to this red stoneware clay that left me quite surprised. I have the other two over on the Flickr account.


  1. Absolutely wonderful...of course! You have an awesome gift. I looked at the additional pieces on your flickr and they are beautiful too. I mentioned on one of the tea bowls, these would make great Mother's Day gifts along with some wonderful green tea. Yum!

  2. Thanks, Cindi, you made my day!
