Set of Wine goblets and tumblers. Unfortunately I'm still working on making things the right size I tend to err on the small size. So only one of the tumblers is the right size.
As for the goblets they turned out really pretty, but the kiln was faulty and stayed at 1100C for loads of hours and failed to reach stoneware temp. So the yellow glaze isn't food safe, but is very pretty and powdery.
It's the same yellow inside both sets.

I love those goblets, I just want to hold them. What a shame the kiln was playing up.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Those are very nice. I love the second set of goblets the are very nice. How did you come up with the design?

The shape is thrown in one whole piece. I did a prototype

As for the glaze I hand painted on the black. It's meant to look a little like a flower with the outside in Frosted Jade and the inside in yellowstone. Waxed the black and dipped both the jade and poured in the yellow.

I was thinking about reglazing them, but this would probably kill that gorgeous yellow. So I'm thinking they may look pretty on the window sill and can be used to but buttons and pins in.

Anyway once kiln is fixed I'll be making some more, as these were meant to be a birthday present for my mum.

Such a shame the kiln wasn't working properly I love the combination of glazes that you've chosen they work so well together.
