Minnesota clay - Wild wine bottle/cup for the lonely forager


Small bottle and cup made with clay located on the shore of Lake Superior near Duluth.  Not too large so you don't get too drunk but it's perfect for an evening alone in the forest. 


The Duluth clay is unusual (for me) - very slick, not many impurities and makes the glaze quite shiny. It took me a while to learn how to create with it.  In the future I'll probably use it to make rough clays smoother and more workable  instead of of making pieces using that clay alone.  In essence, those pieces are quite unique. 


Mixed techniques - Handbuild and wheel. 


Fired at 2100 F using my portable electric kiln. The cup was fired twice. 


Transparent and white glaze made with natural ingredients (Non-toxic) - tested for waterproof inside.
