This is an original, handmade porcelain cup that was wheel-thrown, and comfortably holds 12 oz (350ml). I mixed and wedged green mason stain into the clay by hand prior to forming the cup and handle. Whilst the porcelain clay was still in its leather hard state I carved a botanical illustration of magnolias into the surface - inspired by my visit to New York City's Central Park one spring. The technique used originated in Korea and is known as mishima, in which a black slip (liquid clay) is inlayed into the illustrated lines. So the line drawings that you see on the piece are actually clay, not paint. The magnolia accents are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Size: This cup comfortably holds 12 fluid oz (350ml), and is the perfect size for your daily coffee or tea ritual. The cup can be reheated as needed in the microwave.
Dimensions: Approximately 4in (10 cm) tall, 3.5in (8.5 cm) diameter plus an extra 1.5in (3.5 cm) for the handle
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwavable and dishwasher proof (although hand-washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
** Suitable for both cold or hot contents
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. This piece was stained by hand, and so there may be some small inconsistencies in the color. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made. Your piece may not be identical to the one shown in these images.
Are you looking for a Christmas gift or Holiday gift for the people in your life? Handmade mugs make wonderful, unique and personal gifts for everyone.
