Porcelain Pottery Mug Large with Black Birds and Grapes/Green Liner
NEW SHAPE !This charming black birds and grapes mug holds approximately 10 oz and is 3" tall x 3.5" wide. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
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. These ones have an extra large handle for a 4 fingered grip. Not my preference, but it's not all about me. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a deep olive green coloured liner glaze cheers you up.
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.
