Winter Wren Cup

By tser

A Winter Wren on a wheel-thrown porcelain cup (no handle). The opposite side is decorated with redwood sorrel (oxalis). I glazed it in my favorite transparent green glaze with a tenmoku brown glaze on the inside.

Winter Wrens are very common in the moist coniferous forests that surround me here in NW Oregon, and they run about through the underbrush like mice when they're looking for bugs to eat. The western Winter Wren's song has 36 notes per second average. It's absolutely spectacular. And extremely loud for the bird's wee size!

Cone 6 oxidation.

WHY WHEN I HAVE NO MONEY TO SPARE.

I NEED THIS.

Winter Wrens are our only wrens but they are my favourite of all the wrens.  Tiny brown birds with a voice that knocks your socks off.

They are my absolute FAVORITE wrens, too. We have a bunch of different species here, but Winters are, hands down, the most adorable. That tail! That song! That skitter!

And the cup's been in my hands forever, so who knows. Haha. That darn owl shot glass too. Maybe it will sell fast, maybe it won't.
