Blue Birch Bourbon Cup
Size: 3.5” tall x 3” wide
Handmade faux bois "wooden" ceramic cup, perfect for enjoying a morning cup of juice or an evening cocktail. I press the pattern into the clay and then form the final shape. The inside is a glazed while the outside is unglazed and stained to emphasize the birch bark texture.
My name is Bryan, and I’m a ceramics artist working out of Sullivan County in the Catskills specializing in handmade rustic pottery.
Working primarily with soft slabs, I have come to appreciate the organic nature and movement of clay, and allow the clay do what it wants to do. Using a combination of neutral colored glazes and stains, I let the finished stoneware stand on its own. Beautiful while remaining functional. Drawing inspiration from nature, my work combines the inherent warmth of wood with the hard yet practical nature of ceramics.
