Siramik Hand thrown and decorated daffodil cup

X

Description

Hand thrown and hand decorated cup with happy daffodils. Thrown with earthenware clay, first firing at 1050 degrees Celsius, lovingly hand painted with the daffodils in underglazes, dried, glazed with a transparent glaze and fired again to 1100 degrees Celsius to obtain this lovely cup. Height 9cm, wide 8cm. At the bottom of this cup it has a stamp "Handcrafted in Wales" and Siramik's name and logo. As each product is individually hand thrown on the potter’s wheel and therefore unique, slight variables in size and colour are possible, but this is kept to a minimum. Dishwasher safe, microwave safe and oven proof. A lovely cup for you to use, hold and enjoy!

Having been given a piece of clay when I was 6 years old, I knew what I wanted to do. My dad thought I needed a "proper job" and I became a secretary. Soon I wanted to go back to college and study for my degree. A local pottery offered me a job as a thrower and after several years employed I was able to and given the opportunity to open my own studio. Teaching and sharing my knowledge about clay and all its workings on the potter's wheel and hand building are now paramount to Siramik.
