Neatly Wrapped yarn ball cup

Neatly Wrapped yarn ball cup

Regular price $15.00 Sale

This “neatly wrapped” yarn ball cup (called so because if you look at it and think of wrapping up yarn into a ball, it looks like whoever wrapped this one was pretty darn meticulous) may not be the largest cup in the world but it is going to make *the* perfect gift for a yarnie! Use it for a small cup of tea or coffee, or to sit on the side of your work table and hold stitch markers and other small notions.

This item is available in custom colors! You can see current available HaldeCraft glaze colors on this "Ceramic Glaze Colors" page. Choose "custom color" from the drop-down menu, just as you would any other color for this item, and in the notes on your check-out page, tell me the color you want for your item. Buying multiple custom-glazed items? Be sure to tell me which ones you want in which colors. I will contact you within 24 hours to confirm  your color choice and give you a time frame for your order; most custom ceramic pieces can take 4-6 weeks (so please plan accordingly if you are gift shopping, or shopping with a deadline). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me beforehand.

These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. And while I have been known to put my own ceramics in the microwave, I don't officially recommend it -- the rapid change in temperature can cause the glaze to cool more quickly than the ceramic, which retains heat, and so shrinks at a slower rate. This can occasionally call what is called "crazing". Crazing is when the glaze cools faster than the ceramic piece, making small cracks in the glaze. This can happen immediately or even years later, and personally I've seen it happen on many of the commercial mugs I own that I put in the microwave often.

HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
