Item details





Capacity: 12 Fluid ounces

This is a 100% functional hand made ceramic coffee or tea mug. It is hand built from a wet slab of clay and then thrown on the potters wheel. It is high fired in an electric kiln. A transparent clear gloss glaze is over a yellow and brown textured pattern in the clay. The interior of the mug is a yellow gloss glaze.

It holds approximately 12 ounces of your favorite hot beverage.

The mug is approximately 4 1/2 inches tall, 4 inches wide.

I have added a decorative repair on the mug to make it look as if it was broken put back together kintsugi style (Japanese golden joinery). The decoration is accented with a real gold over glaze. It is purely aesthetic and in no way affects the functionality of the mug.

Kintsugi is where broken ceramics are displayed with pride by repairing the cracks with gold. The repaired "scars" remind us that if broken, and object does not loose importance. In fact, it reminds us that the history of an object adds to it's value.
