Description

12 Oz. Handmade Ceramic
Cat Mug with Paws Prints On Back

Although I pour most of my pieces, I purchased this great mug in bisque* and then handpainted my design on it before firing it in the kiln at almost 2000 degrees. After it cooled (usually about 24 hours), I glazed it with a clear lead-free glaze and refired it in the kiln.

The design is permanent and will not fade, scratch or wear off.

It is Dishwasher & Microwave Safe

Approx. size: 4 Inches Tall by 5 Inches Wide (including handle)

* Bisque is made from liquid clay (called slip), which is poured in a plaster mold until it becomes firm. Once removed from the mold, it is left to dry for several days, somes times up to 2 weeks. Next the seam lines where the 2-piece mold was sealed, are removed by scraping, sanding and finally sponging. Rough edges are smoothed and the piece is fired in a kiln. The clay, which was originally grey, turns white. At that point the bisque piece can be stained, painted or glazed in any colors.

My work has been featured in many juried arts and crafts shows throughout Michigan and several states, I have won awards for my work and been included in many Invitational and Museum Shows. Every design is original and copyrighted by me. Because each piece is handmade, no two are exactly alike.

Quick shipping. I love this mug, the 3 cats are sort of like my 3 cats, a ginger colored Mom and her 2 sons, the darker one is the largest as on this mug. Drink my tea out of it!

FAQs

Yes, everything in my shop is handmade by me in my home studio. I do all of the painting with high fire pigments on earthenware clay (either slab-rolled or slip-cast). Everything is glazed by hand and kiln fired in one of my 3 electric kilns. My designs are original and all have been copyrighted by me. If you see any of these designs, you will find my initials "GMS" somewhere on the piece.
