Wedding gift: chalices [version 01]

I am invited to a wedding next Saturday. At the engagement party I promised two chalices for the couple.

I made some last weekend from terracotta clay, and am now putting white slip on them. Dipping the whole chalice seemed to work at first but then fails during the drying as the clay gets too water-logged. The first two chalices already had their heads broken off. 😦
Back to the drawing board.
