A finely potted deep stoneware beaker with a rounded bottom and a mottled, dark green glaze. The attractive glaze effect is achieved by applying small dots of a wax over the entire surface of the vessel, and then pouring the glaze from the top down. Unglazed ring interior is the result from a clay ring to separate one pot from another in firing.
