EXCEPTIONAL ✔ one pint tankard with full 4 finger handle and thumb knob for balance. Patterned after a style used in English public houses. This is a perfect example of my hand thrown style and a perfect firing of two traditional reduction fired glazes. More than the sum of its parts—this tankard is one of my very best.

GLAZE ➤ The traditional Japanese Kakai / Persimmon glaze displays a broad rust red range which blends with the over-dipped black Tenmoku at the tankard base. Gas kiln reduction fired @ cone▲10 (1250℃) over cork colored vitreous stoneware. The subtle variegated tones are tiny iron oxide crystals which develop as the kiln is slowly cooled. This glaze combination is lead free, food safe and in-use tested.

DETAIL ➤ Cork colored stoneware base stamped with my Maine Kiln Works - Gouldsboro, Maine signature logo. Smooth inside and out for easy cleaning. This is the generously sized mug my clients can't live without. Do not buy one unless you are prepared for the same addiction.

VALUE ➤ My work is not inexpensive because I have no economies of scale. Compared to industrial manufacturing ceramic handcraft is laughably inefficient. Perhaps it's foolish to make something one step at time or perhaps that's the only way to create unique qualities?

HAND ➤ All of the pieces I list are entirely my own hand work: from designing the form, mixing the clay & glaze, forming my stoneware & porcelain and glazing and firing the finished work. I do everything involved but process the raw materials.

SHIP ➤ The photographed piece is ready to ship and the actual piece you will receive. I ship either UPS, FedEx or USPS Priority—the cost of which is included in the price for US delivery. I ship in new corrugated cartons and double box all international shipments so that your piece will arrive in perfect condition .
