medium mug: 2 birds in pinks and greens

44.00

This medium mug features two black birds in a tangle of leafy green vines, with pink and rose berry dots. The inside is a light bright green (I call it spring green).

About 3.5 inches high (9cm), the medium mugs hold around 12 ounces (350ml).

throw these mugs on the potters wheel and pull the handles. Then  I paint the outside with a black underglaze 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, adn 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").
