📖 THE PROCESS:
This handmade barnacle cup starts as a single ball of clay, and a cup was thrown on the potter's wheel. Texture is added and the foot is created. Next, each barnacle is meticulously handmade and attached to the piece, inspired by underwater life and is ready to #admire from every angle. Finishing touches are added with shells attached to the face of the piece. Gentle curves around each barnacle also serve as a function to catch the drippy glazes.
After drying, the piece is carefully loaded into the kiln and is bisque fired, then underglaze and sea glass is added to the piece, and the piece is stilted on its side in the kiln for the sea glass to melt and drip in the second glaze firing to transform into a work of art.
