Dimensions: approx 6,5 cm high and approx 6 cm diameter
Material: Montblanc porcelain.
Technique: hand formed by slip casting. The relief is obtained by using the shellac technique; putting a shellac design by hand on the raw porcelain and taking of a layer of porcelain with a wet sponge. That is why each cup has a different design. The cup is glazed on the inside and unglazed on the outside. Fired in a electric kiln for the first time up to 950 degrees Celcius (bisquit) and for the second time un to 1260 degrees Celcius (glazing). High firing makes the porcelain strong and robust.
