The Winter Bird Mug is wheel thrown using a speckled brown stoneware clay and features a monoprinted image of a dark blue bird in a winter scene. The monoprinted scene wraps around the body of the mug. Monoprinting is a method of surface design requiring time and patience. Each mug is printed using several layers of slip applied to newsprint, building the design from the foreground to the background. Due to the nature of this surface design method, each mug is slightly different and no two designs are exactly alike.
Winter Bird-Dark Blue
The Winter Bird mug is approximately 4 inches high and holds about 10 ounces of liquid with room for cream or anything else you care to add to your beverage. Each mug is lined with a glossy glaze. The outside image area has a clear glaze. The rest of the mug body including the handle is the same gloss glaze used inside the mug..
This mug is food and dishwasher safe, although hand washing is recommended.
