I made Wood Fired Tumblers on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. Flat bottom. Rolled lip which makes the flow smooth from the interior of the vessel to your lips. Well-balanced and light weight, Wood Fired Tumblers sit flat and stable.
After the bisque fire, I dunked the tumblers in a red shino glaze that I make and the added bands of black slip at the bottoms of the cups for accent. And then into the wood kiln until 2450 degrees F, where reduction and ash and salt create a unique surface on each one. A spray of natural ash glaze make each tumbler a one-of-a-kind vessel for favorite beverages.
Smooth to the touch. Pleasing to behold. Durable and unique. Straight forward and classic.
Use the tumblers for hot or cold beverages. Great for iced tea, beer, stout, water, lemonade. Or use them for your coffee first thing in the morning. Of course, if you use for hot tea or put in the microwave you will want to allow the surface to cool enough to grasp.
Sold as a pair, these tumblers make a thoughtful and unique, handcrafted wedding, housewarming, holiday, birthday or thank you gift.
They stand about 6.25″ high and are 3″ in diameter. Each tumbler holds 14 oz
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
