Rainy Day Auction

I'm auctioning this cup off over at my Instagram feed. Click here to check it out and win! (if you are the highest bidder)

from the post on Instagram:

Here is an example of what’s known in NC as “swirlware”. A kind of hybrid of the alkaline glazed pottery of the Catawba Valley, a short distance to the east near Hickory NC and a japanese form called yunomi. The swirl design is porcelain clay thrown in the iron rich “home clay”, a mixture of local red dirt and fireclay, and wood fired. It is glazed with a clear amber and has a subtle wax resist botanical pattern .

Height is 4.5” (11.4cm) and holds 14 oz (414mL)
