Porcelain Pottery Mug with Chrysanthemums/Purple Liner
The chrysanthemum mug holds approximately 14 oz and is 4" tall x 3.5" wide. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom. These are a little wider at the top than previous mugs. Perhaps I am being converted to frothy coffee.
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. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a purple 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.
