Porcelain Pottery Mug with Shell Pattern in Green
If you love a hand made pottery mug, you will love mine! This is an old shell pattern that I usually use on my wall fish, but thought it would be fun on a couple of mugs.
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 a green shell pattern. The patterns are sealed permanently into the clay by the glazing process. A clear glaze is over the the entire piece leaving the inside white, unusual for me. Please appreciate the slight variations and imperfections that are the signs of hand made pottery.
This mug is approximately 3.75" tall x 3.5" wide and holds 14 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.
