St Brendan the Navigator, patron saint of whales. Inspired by a book on the lives of the saints found at a yard sale.

Wording incised on cup: St Brendan the Navigator 486-575. Patron Saint of Whales. Mistaking it for an island, Brendan and crew land on a whale to celebrate mass. Fish gather to listen when Brendan celebrates mass.

St Brendan The Navigator Coffee Mug is about 3 3/4"h x 3 1/2"w (5" wide with handle). This whimsical cup holds about 12 ounces.

Mug is wheelthrown and altered midrange porcelain with carved relief design and decorated with colorful underglazes. The glaze is transparent with a varied bluish tint. Interior glaze is black. Electric kiln fired to Cone 6.

Food safe. Diswasher safe. Limit prolonged microwave use as the clay can get too hot. Ouch. Never use directly on stove top.

Frequently asked questions about barbaradonovan

Ceramics is weighty and usually expensive to ship internationally, but I would be happy to provide you with a shipping quote. Shipping for small items to Canada are already included in some listings.
IN CASE OF DAMAGE: I use quality packing supplies and pack carefully. In the unlikely event of damage in shipping, please save the packaging for possible shipper damage claim and contact me right away. Send me a picture of the damaged piece and packaging for proof, and I will replace the piece or issue a refund.

IN CASE OF LOSS: Both USPS and FedEx require several weeks before a package is considered truly lost. Your patience while we wait them out is greatly appreciated.
I'd love to consider your custom requests. I'm happy to make pots inspired by your pet, but do not personalize my pottery with names. Custom requests take 3 to 8 weeks depending on what's going on in studio.
As you can imagine, I receive numerous requests for donations of pottery to worthy fundraising events. While I'd love to help everyone, I unfortunately cannot afford to do so. Donations of pottery for fundraising events are limited to arts related and animal rescue events in my local area and to those of my close friends, family, and some established customers. Thank you for understanding.
I'm not open to new consignment or wholesale requests at this time.
If you've missed the 3 hour time limit for cancelling an order, contact me anyway. I sometime ship within a few hours but more generally within 1 - 3 business days so there is a chance your order hasn't left my studio yet.
