A retired potter gave me her clay and some glazes. The clay was a mix of brown and white. After it was turned I applied this green glaze which became slightly transparent. The grey stripes of the mug, caused by turning it on my pottery wheel, allowed the grey stripes to be seen through the glaze, creating a new striped effect.
I add the carving which reminded me of the grains growing on the farm I grew up on.
SIZE -Approximate- 3.25″ to 3.5″ (8-9 cm) high and the
3″ (7.5 cm) across the top rim.
Capacity of about 6 – 8 oz
COLOUR- Gloss Olive Green
Computer, tablet, and phone screens may cause the colour to look slightly different than what it is. See the colour description above.
Occasionally the glaze on the rim of my mugs is slightly rough to the touch. I try my best to eliminate this, but the glaze does what it wants to in the kiln. I do not return items with these as this proves that my mugs are individually made and not mass-produced in a factory.
Each cup is sold separately. Use the drop-down menu to choose how many you would like.
PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE STOCK PHOTOS– My mugs are turned on my potter’s wheel, one at a time. Although I try to make each mug exactly the same there are slight differences in shape and size. Many of my glazes run down the mugs creating variations in the colours. Each mug has unique and not made in a factory.
Ready to ship. I wrap my pottery in bubble wrap, then I pack it tightly in the box surrounding it with Styrofoam peanuts. If possible I use recyclable packing material to save them from going into the landfill.
HOW I MAKE MY CUPS
I turn cups on the potter’s wheel and set them aside for a day to firm up. The following day I trim the bottom, carve the wheat, then add the handle. When they are bone dry, they are fired (baked) in an electric kiln for several hours. I either paint 3 coats or dip them in ceramic glaze and fire them to about 2900 degrees.
