$65.00 Sold Out

Finely crafted from Australian porcelain, this cup has nerikomi layers of coloured porcelain and various stoneware clays inlayed through its walls. Sourced from local volcanic clays of Tamborine Mountain, these cups are some of the first from this collection. Quite a story can be told on how I was able to get hold of these 3 special wild clays of Tamborine Mountain. But imagine coming up with a crazy plan to research local potters who sourced their own clay in the 1950’s. Then after researching, interviewing and locating these original clays, being allowed access to them, processing and testing it.. to find that it’s all stoneware and it’s absolutely amazing to work with. with no additives, fired to cone 10) The stories about these industrious mid century women potters comes soon. I am currently working with an art historian and a geologist. I can't wait to share.

Each cup is hand crafted by Larissa in her underground bunker studio on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland.

Price is for 1 cup- which has its own special personality.

Polished and silky smooth porcelain inside and out. Glazed with a semi gloss clear inside.

Fired to cone 10 which offers superior translucency, whiteness and strength.

Recommendation is to hand wash for a long & happy life.
