The body of the mug measures arroximately 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. The four mugs I have left have straight sides (as in photo 3)- I will replace the other photos when the sun comes out and I can take some new ones..

To make it I started off with a ball of red earthenware clay which I threw on a potters wheel and then I added on a decorative handle. The handle was made by rolling a coil of clay in a mold taken from a vintage cut glass dish. Liquid white clay, called slip, was poured inside to give it bright fresh interior and then it was fired. It was decorated with leadfree, foodsafe glaze and then the hand drawn decal was fired into the smooth glazed surface.

You can see the process from start to finish in this two minute film at http://vimeo.com/27113222
