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. I make my handles for a two finger lift.

The exterior decoration is a transfer technique that requires a THIRD KILN FIRING. I basically complete a plain mug, entirely glazed with clear (so the interior of this mug is white), then I apply DECALS to the surface in full colour and in 22 karat gold, then fire them in the kiln so the decals melt in to the surface of the clear glaze. Yes, it really is gold. THIS MAKES THE MUG NOT MICROWAVE SAFE.

This mug holds approximately 16oz and is 3.75" tall x 3.75." wide. Dishwasher safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.

As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
