The body of the mug measures approximately 90mm across and the height to the top of the handle is around 90mm. Each one is handmade therefore no two mugs are identical. The shape, size and glaze application will vary slightly between each item.
To make it I started off with a ball of red earthenware clay which I threw on a potter’s wheel and then I dipped the body in slip before adding on a decorative handle. The handle was made by rolling a coil of clay in a mold taken from a vintage cut glass dish. Slip was poured inside to give it a bright fresh interior and the sgraffito drawings were carved through the slip on the outside before firing. It was decorated with lead-free, food safe glaze and then a decal was fired into the smooth glazed surface.
You can see the mug making process (not including the sgraffito part) from start to finish in this two minute film at http://vimeo.com/27113222
