This mug is great for a morning cup of coffee or tea. It holds 8 oz. and measures 3.25" high and 3.5" wide or 4" including the handle. Pair it with the Yellow Bee Teapot for tea for one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80593803/porcelain-yellow-bee-teapot

This piece is wheel-thrown and made of mid-fire porcelain. The exterior is a slightly transparent buttery yellow glaze with a clear interior glaze. It features two bees, painted by hand in black underglaze using a graphite transfer process.

There is so much wonderful symbolism and myth connected to bees. They are associated with immortality, resurrection and fertility. The facts about bees are even more fascinating than the myths: the Queen bee is the sole mother of all the bees in the hive; all worker bees are female, and male bees, called drones, are only birthed when the Queen needs them to fertilize her eggs; the Queen is often the only member of the hive to survive the Winter, and she rebuilds the hive in the Spring.

All my pieces are food, microwave and dishwasher safe, though they prefer hand washing.

This design is part of an open edition collection. I currently have 9 in stock. The piece pictured may not necessarily be the piece you receive. As with most handmade work slight variations are natural.
