Porcelain Pottery Mug with Dahlias
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 these hold approximately 12 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. There are drips of green and turquoise on the exterior of this cup over the black dahlia transfer to add colour interest to the surface. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery. The stained glass floral mug is approximately 3.75" tall x 3.75" wide. The liner glaze is a jewel tone green. Dishwasher/microwave safe. Signed "Sullivan, Canada" on the bottom.
