Firewalker Red Mug
Firewalker Red Mug
Capacity: 16 fluid ounces
Update - I've adjusted the glazes and the red on the top half is brighter. The older burgundy glaze was deep and rich, but it really only looked good in bright lighting.
About – I combined four different glazes to create the pattern on these mugs. It reminds me of rich earth, Glowing coals, dull red embers, and wisps of smoke, so I’m calling this color combination “Firewalker Red.” The glazes melt together and flow, which highlights the texture pattern on these tall mugs. There will be differences in texture, and the balance of glazes will vary, especially where they melt together and flow down the mug. Each piece is an individual.
Details – These mugs are approximately 4.75” tall, 3.75” wide (at the widest point) and hold a generous 16 – 18 ounces of your favorite hot or cold beverage. Because I make each piece individually by hand, there will be slight variations in dimensions from one piece to the next. Handles are also cut, pulled to a taper, and attached individually, and all the joints are blended and smoothed. I make the handles extra wide at the top so it rests comfortably on your fingers, which is especially important for a larger mug. All my functional pottery is food-safe, microwave-safe, and dishwasher-safe.

We wanted something to commemorate this summer's coinciding events of the 17 year cicadas and 17 years of marriage. We loved our friend's handmade Gruner Pottery cicada mugs, and requested a special order from Paul. He was quick to reply and happy to help. The time between ordering and receiving was 2 weeks... amazing really, for all of the work that goes into making such detailed cups from scratch. We love our happy cicada cups and they're prominently displayed in the kitchen when they're not in use for coffee and tea, or even a summer gin and tonic. Cheers Paul for your creativity!
This mug is even more beautiful in person. To call it a “mug” almost feels weird. It’s art. I LOVE the bark texture. He was so great to talk to, and open to adding something I wanted on the bottom. Buy with confidence and know you’re investing in something that will be beautiful.
Woah!! These are truly beautifully made and they look amazing. Such attention to detail and quality. I love them!! Thank you!!!
