Porcelain Pottery Mug with Koi in Waves
If you love a hand made pottery mug, you will love mine! This is a large mug, holding approximately 18 ounces. I made it with men in mind.
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, and this holds approximately 18 oz. The exterior decoration is a transfer technique which is a silkscreening technique of koi jumping in waves in black. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior, a denim blue glaze lines the interior. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. This mug is approximately 4.25" tall x 4" 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.
