📖 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.
After drying, the piece is carefully loaded into the kiln and is bisque fired, glaze is added to the piece, and the piece is fired a second time to transform into a work of art.
