Porcelain Pottery Mug with Blackbirds and Grapes
If you love a hand made pottery mug, you will love mine!
I make my mugs out of a white porcelain clay body. I throw them on the potter's wheel, trim the bottoms with a foot ring so the bottoms are glazed as well. Each handle has been pulled and attached to the cup individually, so each cup has great character. Almost all of my handles are designed for two normal sized fingers, and this holds approximately 14 oz. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of birds and grapes in black. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a green liner glaze cheers you up. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This mug is approximately 3.75" tall x 4" wide. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher, microwave safe. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
