Toasting Tails Wine Goblet
Sculpture - Porcelain
This is a high-fired porcelain Toasting Tail wine glass. It is glazed with under glazes on the outside and a blue celadon glaze on the inside. Then each piece is meticulously hand painted and sprayed with a fritted glaze before firing it to 2400 degrees Fahrenheit, making the clay body translucent.
This wine glass was hand-built from a thinly rolled slab of porcelain. When the clay is still wet it is pressed into a mold that has a fish texture. (Yes! I caught the fish). The texture varies as tactical playing, pushing and poking alters the surface. The porcelain is then cut to the required shapes and formed to my desired cup shape. No two pieces are the same. The shape alterations make this tail comfortable to hold in one's hand.
The celadon blue interior produces a clear liquid look of extravagant beauty that enhances your beverage experience.
I use non-toxic and food safe glazes and microwave safe. They are dishwasher safe as well but I would be happier if you hand-wash them to prevent any mishaps in the dishwasher.
