There's a lot going on with this mug, both visually and in terms of texture and glaze. You know what? I dig it! I love functional wood fired ceramics and this one is a very welcomed addition to my collection. Sure, it's dramatically different from Melanie's China paint and gold luster work, but I'll take it just the same! I look forward to examining this cup every time I use it and pondering the process behind its creation. Melanie's work is so interesting and I highly recommend it. Thanks, Melanie! This is a beautiful mug! *Update: I forgot to mention how well Melanie packages her work. My mug arrived safely and securely. Very nice touches, Melanie!*
