Porcelain Pottery Mug with Black Walnuts in Green
If you love a hand made pottery mug, you will love mine! This is an old favourite pattern that I have ordered a few sheets of, so very limited quantity.
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 of black walnut branches. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the exterior with a soft green interior. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery.
This mug is approximately 3.5" tall x 3.75" wide and holds 10 ounces. 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.
