Bee Ware Porcelain Pottery Mug with Blue Liner Glaze
If you love a hand made pottery mug, you will love mine! And these bee mugs are hard to keep in stock!
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 of black bumble bees. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a coloured navy blue liner glaze cheers you up. Please note this is a new ever so slight variation on the shape with an ever so slight outward curve at the lip. The ever popular bee mug holds approximately 14 oz and is 3.5" widex 3.5" 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.
