Handmade Colored Porcelain Double 4 Quilt Pattern Cup RKC132
This piece was made from hand colored porcelain clay. First I colored several batches of porcelain by hand with Mason stains, and layered them into a loaf in a Double 4 quilt pattern. I sliced off pieces of the loaf and formed them into cups. I bisqued fired them, and then I put a clear glaze on the inside of the piece to provide a non-porous surface for food usage. The pieces were then fired to maturity at cone 6. Absolutely One Of A Kind!
About 5" tall and 2 1/2" in diameter, holds about ten ounces.
These four were tested with water for several days and do not leak! Sadly, there were several others that weep, and others that could serve as strainers. The colored clay layering process is tricky. The closeup shows how the colors can separate. These are the "good ones" and are a comfortable size to use for drinks. The outer unglazed porcelain surface feels smooth yet has a bit of an easily gripped "bite" to it.
This listing is for one of the four shown. If you have a preference for a specific one, please let me know. I will check off as they are sold. They are exactly the same but different, LOL, since they are one slice after the other from the OOAK clay original loaf. Matching snack plates are also available.
I have several "seconds" that will be listed separately that are the leakers. They work well as pencil cups or tool holders or eye pencil cups, just not liquids.
Includes US shipping. I will ship to many other countries - please ask for a quote prior to purchase. Thanks!

My RKMixables line is designed for you to interchange pieces to suit your changing needs. The necklaces terminate in lobster clasps which will connect to each other, but I have planned for you to add a clasp and jumprings to connect more than one piece. The clasp will add another inch or so to the length of the piece, and the jumprings will keep the pieces together, whether you have chosen to twist or braid them or to cascade several lengths.
I can make alterations to many of the jewelry pieces before shipping if you desire. Necklaces can be shortened, and in some cases lengthened. I can also add an extender chain or clasp, and it is possible in many cases to use an "extender" to actually take up some length.
I can change many of the earrings to leverbacks at additional cost (leverbacks are much more expensive than wires) and I can change wires to posts. BUT - I do not have posts in copper yet. I also have some clip-on backs!
I am always happy to discuss making a special piece for you. Please don't hesitate to ask!
Thanks for reading about my policies.
Thanks so much for the beautiful necklace. Great value too.
