large cup with handle - vases + bird+ house

48.00

A tall large  round cup, big  enough for a large cup of tea or caffe latte--some people like them for soup  or chili as well. It holds 16 ounces.

This cup is painted with birds, vessels,  trees and vines with greys and black. The inside is a a deep inky blue.

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").
