Tenmoku and Iron Wash Whisky Sipper
Wheel thrown and altered porcelain cup glazed with glossy Tenmoku inside and iron wash outside. This type of unique handmade altered cup has traditionally been used as a tea bowl to enhance the drinking experience for the tea drinker. Many whisky drinkers are finding a similar enhancement when savoring their hard to find expensive whisky's. Porcelain maintains the temperature of the liquid longer when hands might otherwise warm the liquid quickly in glass. The cup also adds a tactile experience as fingers explore the altered form of the cup.
