large round cup with handle - owl + bird with inky blue interior

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  about 12 ounces.

This cup is painted with a small grey owl and a black bird on a vine, wiht grey hills in the backgroundand grey dots. The interior is glazed inky deep blue, and the exterior is unglazed, polished porcelain. It feels a bit like a weathered stone--the porcelain is vitrified (sealed)  and it will not stain.

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").
