This mug was thrown on the wheel by Meredith at her Fern Street Pottery Studio. The mug was thrown in a red-brown stoneware clay (stoneware, not terra cotta!) then trimmed to have a finished foot and the handle was added. The shape, which curves in at the top is specifically designed to keep your beverages warmer longer.
The handle is hand pulled, creating a shape that fits comfortably in your hand, with a perfect groove for your thumb. After drying and firing I glazed it in a glossy speckle white glaze which I dipped at an angle to reveal the beautiful red clay beneath. The glaze design is a tactile experience between the smooth glaze and the natural texture of the exposed clay. This mug holds approximately 14oz (14-16oz). It is lead free, microwave and dishwasher safe.
This purchase is for one mug, but more may be available. They are made one at a time so no two are exactly alike, but they are very well matched.
