Handmade and hand painted porcelain ceramic mug. Electric fired to cone 6 so it is food safe as well as microwave and dishwasher safe. 4.25'' tall x 4.5'' wide, holds about 18 ounces.
Sometimes the alchemy of ceramics does something magical, and this piece is one of those instances. On the colored section there is a small amount of what is called "blistering" which creates the slightly bumpy texture you can see in the pictures. This piece has been tested and is 100 percent safe and functional, and I'm working on re-creating this texture on purpose for future pieces! This guy is a special one :)
Please note these pieces are handmade and are not perfect! The rim might not be perfectly round, there might be a small smudge where I had underglaze on my finger. This is the beauty of handmade work- these pieces are sturdy but they have character :)
