Tall Tumbler or Vase ~ 8.5"H

Mark Hewitt Pottery

SKU: 111-IT01

Tall tumbler or vase ~ the top is a dark kaolin slip with combing decoration and the bottom is a creamy granite glaze. Both vary in color as you turn the pot in your hand thanks to the complicated atmosphere in a wood firing. Mark uses this as a drinking tumbler, but it doubles very nicely as a useful vase.

Here's Mark on the origin of this shape.  "Tea drinking has fueled pottery making across the globe. Vessels are required. Bowls for the Japanese Tea Ceremony, teacups and saucers for English tea-time and mugs here in the US are easy examples. Here in the South iced tea is a favorite drink, so I created these tall tumblers or Iced Tea Ceremony Vessels, (ITCV) as I like to call them."
