And now for something entirely different! This piece was made as a birthday gift for a friend of mine, the ever-eloquent (Ponydora) *Prancypants
. As my friend is a fellow Rarity fan, and also a voracious coffee drinker I was hit by the inspiration one day that a travel coffee tumbler might be an appropriate gift for him, and the result is this piece, entirely handpainted with ceramic underglaze paints, then kiln-fired so it is a fully functional item. I apologize that it was not especially easy to photograph well (even if one is a good photographer and has a decent camera, neither of which can really be said of me) but I did the best I could nevertheless.
