Cup with Bernard climbing the ladder. These ladders remind me of the ladders used for fruit picking years ago, with weathered green paint.
This is a unique one of a kind piece you will receive the cup as pictured. Giftbox included.
This whimsical cup is glazed with a clear lead free glaze on the inside and upper half of the outside. Stamped at the bottom with Two Trees logo.
This cup is 10 cm / 4 inches tall and approx 9 cm / 3 1/2 inches wide.
Each piece is handmade by Annemiek Hamelink in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, where the clay is thin, it’s translucent. So porcelain looks delicate, but is relatively strong. I fire my work at least twice, once at a low temperature, after which glazes can be applied, followed by a firing at a high temperature. Natural porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colours, the colour is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.
Hand washing is always an option. If the item is all porcelain it can be washed in the dishwasher, be careful when stacking it.
All my items come in gift wrapped. This will go in to a box or envelop with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment.
