These slab work, folded mugs hold a nice cup of tea or morning coffee with the textured lace impression giving a unique and interesting feel under your palm. This geometric lace pattern creates a strong design of brown texture in contrast to the surrounding glaze.

I make these mugs by first rolling out a large slab of clay, cutting the mug template, rolling a lace doily into the cut slab of clay and then folding and smoothing into the unique and sturdy shape seen above. The glaze surrounds the lace impressed portion, which is stained with an iron oxide solution, bringing out the details of the lace and leaving the brown portion a mat earthy texture.

I call this my "diamond" lace design.

*At any one time I may not have more than one of any one color mug. If you would like more than one tea set of the same color, please contact me prior to placing your order so I can check my stock.

All glazes are lead-free. Food and dishwasher safe; not recommended for microwave.

Each Blue Heron Pottery piece is individually hand made--no molds or casting!
