"Itiko" tea cup.

This is a tea cup with an iron oxide slip on the rim. The slip is made from the stoneware clay I dug from the ground (70%) some potash feldspar and whiting with a little red iron oxide make up the remaining 30%. The whiting and Potash feldspar lower the melting temp. of the stoneware clay, so it melts like a gaze.
