What people are saying: "Your mugs are so lightweight and balanced. I like your use of bold colors"
This is an original, handmade porcelain cup that was wheel-thrown, and comfortably holds 12 oz. Before forming the cup I wedged orange mason stain into the porcelain clay (please note, because the stain is mixed in by hand, the color pigmentation may be varied). While the clay was in the leather-hard stage I hand carved this illustration of bright, bold and happy peonies onto the surface, then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the carved lines. So all the black line drawings that you see are actually clay, not paint. The white peonies and leaves are then hand-painted on, and a clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Dimensions: This cup comfortably holds 12-14 fluid oz. It's the perfect size for your coffee and tea refills while you work from home, and can be reheated in the microwave as needed.
Size is 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. 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.
Are you looking for a Christmas or Holiday gift for the people in your life? Handmade mugs, and especially porcelain mugs, make wonderful, unique and personal gifts for everyone!
