This mug would make a great gift for the coffee or hot tea drinker in your life.

I made this mug on the potter's wheel in my Kansas studio. I decorated the surface using the Sgraffito tecnique combined with the addition of velvet underlgazes. Sgraffito is the process of applying layers of contrasting slip to unfired pottery, and then scratching to reveal parts of the underlying clay. In this case I applied 4 to 6 coats of green slip on white clay. I painted on a pink daisy design using velvet underglazes. After the mug has been fired once, I glazed the top edge and interior of your mug in raspberry pink and cover the lower part of the mug with a shiny clear glaze. I then fired the mug in oxidation to about 2100 degrees Fahrenheit. I paint the lower part of the mug in mother of pearl luster and fired the mug for a third time. I painted white gold luster around the edges of the petals and fire a fourth time.

This mug will hold 16 oz. of your favorite beverage. It will be approximately 4.25 inches (10.8 cm) tall and 3.25 inches (8.255 cm) in diameter.

Hand wash to preserve the luster. Do not microwave.
