Porcelain Pottery Mug with Black Poppy Flower Transfer/Green Liner Glaze
This is an old transfer revisited on my new mug shape. I won't be making much more of this patterned work, so grab it now.
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 the interiors of the these mugs hold 15 oz. 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 coloured liner glaze cheers you up. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. These poppy mugs are approximately 3.5" tall x 3.5" wide. The liner glaze is a rich green. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan" 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.
