My newest baby... the cup and saucer! This was inspired by a larger installation sculpture I made. The baby is hand sculpted to fit in the fingers of the hand! Both are hand sculpted. The cup sits inside the hand and is removable.
This BabyFace cup starts off as a ball of clay! Literally just a ball. With that ball of clay I will make a cup on the wheel. I then pull, push, and add clay on top of the surface to create each individual expression. I then carve all the little details, fire it in the kiln, and hand paint each face before it returns to the kiln for a 2nd time.
All BabyFace mugs are microwave, dishwasher, and food safe! I do recommend hand washing though. For any and all handmade ceramic pieces it is more gentle on the surface to just use some soap and a soft rag.
