Porcelain Pottery Mug with Koi in Swirling Water Blue Liner
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.
The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique that has koi swimming in water. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a coloured liner glaze cheers you up. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery.
This koi mug is approximately 3.75" tall x 3.75" wide and holds 14 ounces. The liner glaze is a denim blue. 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.
