Round Stoneware Mug in White Matte Glaze and Earthy Speckled Stoneware Made in USA
This rustic mug was hand thrown and trimmed on my pottery wheel using a brown speckled stoneware clay, the handle has a repeating floral design giving added character to this piece. It was bisque fired and glazed with a matte white glaze that allows the natural speckles of the clay to show through. It was then high fired in my electric kiln.
For months I searched the internet to find a clay that has this depth of speckling in it. This particular clay comes from Canada, and while it is more costly than the local clays I use, I believe it's worth it to be able to make special pieces like this.
This unique cup will compliment any rustic, primitive or minimalist decor. It's round shape makes it a pleasure to hold and it may be used for beverages or yogurt, ice cream etc.
Approximate size: 4.25" across the top rim and 3.25" high, holds approximately 12 ounces of liquid.
