large round cup with handle - owl + teapot + house + pots

48.00

The large round cup is the size I like for a big cup of tea or caffe latte--some people like them for soup as well. It holds 12 ounces.

This cup is painted with a small owl, a house, a teapot, and some small vessels in a meandering vine. There are peach colored dots with black, and the inside is a light, bright spring green.

I throw these mugs on the potters wheel and pull the handles. Then  I paint the outside with underglazes and etch/carve/scratch through with a variety of tools to add the details (this is called sgraffito). After a first (bisque) firing,  the mug is glazed inside with a colored glaze, and outside with a satin clear.

You may wash them by hand or in the dishwasher.  If you drink a lot of tea, like I do, the inside will stain over time--but this is easily removed with an abrasive scrubbing (I use those dark green scouring pads commonly found in the grocery store--we call them "green scrubbies").
