Large Cup, Handmade and Handcarved with Soft Pink Flowers and Birds by Sue Canizares - Fine Art Ceramics
artizanmade.com/portfolios/sue-canizares-ceramics/

Handmade and hand carved pink cup decorated with flowers and birds. This cup is made for someone who is serious about their tea or coffee because it holds 16 ounces or two cups of whatever it is that makes your heart start in the morning. Although really, this would be great to use for drinking anything, at any time. You won't find another cup like this - it's unique, just like you are. It would make a wonderful gift for any special occasion, like a birthday or anniversary, Mother's Day or just for friendship.

I made it on the potter's wheel, trimming out an organic foot and adding a nice big handle so you can get a good grip on it. I painted it with a white under glaze and meticulously carved out the flower and animal designs - I even carved inside the foot ring. I glazed it with a very hard and durable soft, warm pink, glossy glaze. It fits perfectly in the hand and the texture and designs are something to enjoy during all those quiet times in your life.

It measures 4 1/4 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches in diameter at the rim and about 4 inches in diameter at the belly and holds 2 cups of liquid.

I will be wrapping this carefully in bubble wrap and double boxing it for safe arrival to you.

No other commitment was expected. When the volunteers stepped forward, the events were announced to the entire region, but primarily intended for art quilters within driving distance of each other. The inaugural meeting of SNaP (SAQA Northern VA Art Pod) which has since grown to over 50 members! Janet Marney in Northern Virginia responded, and turnout at the inaugural meeting of SNaP (short for SAQA Northern Virginia Art Pod) was ample evidence that the organizers had hit on a good idea.
