'Cranogwen' small cup


This small (espresso size) cup celebrates 'Cranogwen', the Bardic name of Welsh poet and master mariner Sarah Jane Rees (1839 - 1916).

'Cranogwen' is one of the 'Monumental Welsh Women' celebrated in statues around Wales, and given that poetry and seafaring are staples of the lustre tradition we thought she deserved a cup too.

Transfer decorated with drawings by Clive Hicks-Jenkins that imagine how she may have looked in her early days as a sailor in the romantic maritime style of the day. Hand painted pink lustre.

Slipcast earthenware glazed ceramic

6.5cm tall, 6.5cm diameter plus handle

The cup in the photograph is an example. Lustre decoration gives minor variations, the one you will receive will look almost, but not perfectly, identical.
