Mise en Place Cups

Frank has been working on some funky little cups in the studio lately.  Here’s a look at the process:

The cups were created by removing the tops of some forms Frank cast, and then adding a foot:

cups-1

cups-2

cups-3

After finishing the lips, the cups were then bisqued, sanded, waxed, and glazed…

cups-4

cups-5

And then fired again to a nice glossy green…

cups-6

cups-7

The cups are about 3 inches across, and would be great for holding cooking spices or condiments.  I test-drove a sample cup last week, and based on my experience, they are also perfect for holding chocolate chips.
