This elegant porcelain mug shows two Black-necked Stilts, one on each side, facing each other, and carved into the clay. The birds are glazed with black and white glazes, with a red underglaze on the legs. The water, handle, and interior are glazed in shiny Blue Wheat, the white waves and beach left unglazed. Blue Wheat is a striking glaze, full of complex swirls and speckles, the overall color similar to a medium shade of denim blue jeans. I love the way the rim comes out a light buffy color, contrasting with the blue and defining the rim of the mug.

The piece was thrown on a potter's wheel in porcelain, carved when leather hard, and a simple handle added, wide enough to accommodate 3 or 4 fingers, depending on the size of your hand. It is comfortably light in feel, but still with enough substance for durability.

This rather tall mug comfortably holds 10 fluid ounces (US), a bit more if filled to the rim. Dimensions are 4 1/4" tall, and 3 13/16" at the rim.

This is Cone 10, high fire porcelain.

I have included several photos, with closeups intended to show the raised, carved surfaces.

If you are close to western PA, I may be able to offer a shipping discount, to be refunded after this item is shipped. Shipping includes insurance.

Hand washing is safest, but this cup should do fine in the dishwasher and microwave.
