#36 Black & White Painted Thumb Cup - 12 oz
This tumbler is hand thrown on the pottery wheel. After throwing on the wheel, while the clay is still soft, the indent is created in the clay to fit a thumb perfectly. After hardening, the cup is trimmed to clean up the bottom and left to dry. The black design is painted onto white porcelain using ceramic stain. The entire cup is glazed in a crackled clear that helps solidify the design and add a shine.
These thumb cups are very comfortable to hold. The thumb indent makes it ideal to keep a firm grip and hold with smaller hands. They are microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe. They work well for both hot and cold drinks. Many people use them for coffee in the morning without issue. The walls of these cups are thick enough to protect hands from hot coffee.
Please note: All ceramics are handmade and may have slight imperfections. If very hot liquid is poured into cup, it may become hot to handle, but will cool down after a few minutes.
