Espresso Cups in Aubergine Purple Glaze

These 80ml espresso cups are a challenge to photograph.  They deep rich shade appear black in many photos.  Here I used an old magazine page to help highlight the violet hues your eye can see when holding these cups.  Each set begins as a lump of clay, wedged methodically to mix the clays then made on the potters wheel.  After this there is a drying period before the base is turned smooth.  The cup is carefully handled many more times between firings and glazing before it comes to your hands.
