Tumblers and Wine Cups

Tumblers and Wine Cups

These two items go hand in hand. I love making both of them because they’re loose and a nice addition to a collection of pottery for everyday use.

These are designed to mimic a Japanese Tea Cup. I pay special attention to how they feel in the hand. After I throw the initial piece I dent them on four sides with my fingertips.

This creates an off-kilter effect and mis-shapes them. Oddly it also alters them to fit nicely in the hand, providing comfortable finger rest. They’re great for wine or juice, and some people use them for morning expresso.


Our tumblers also fit your hand nicely with similar contours for your fingers. They hold about 14 ounces. Great for beer, juice, or large drinks. Actually, they were initially made for our friend Patrick who is a mojito lover. Here’s a mouth watering mojito recipe;

6 ounces light rum
12 mint sprigs, or spearmint, 8 roughly broken apart
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 tablespoons sugar
Club soda
4 slices lime

Place ice in beverage shaker then add in the rum, 8 broken up mint sprigs, lime juice and sugar.
Shake well and serve over ice.
Top off each glass with a splash of club soda.
Garnish each with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
