Deco mug w. Ovals in Frost gloss w. Navy blue pinstripes
This porcelain mug has a lovely blend of Art Deco and Victorian mod flair that provides daily elegance for your morning coffee or tea. I glazed this cup in a glossy light turquoise and decorated it with ovals and navy blue inlay lines. A sophisticated and joyful cup for everyday.

Process:
I throw this form on the potter’s wheel and then use a stamp I design and make to impress and alter the surface of the cup. My fingerprint is on the other side of each one of the imprints. The undulation from the stamping and textural relief creates a wonderfully soft and tactile surface with each sip. Other decoration includes hand-brushed underglaze and inlay.

The handles I make (two pieces) are hand-pulled and built for comfort, durability, AND elegance. No molds are used. Every cup is handmade by me alone, and is wheel-thrown, stamped, altered, trimmed, built, slip-trailed, multi-glazed, and fired twice for your using pleasure.

About:
- Approx. 4" h x 6" l x 4 1/2" d; holds 12 oz.
- The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
- My work is both elegant AND intended for your use and enjoyment. While very durable, microwavable, and dishwasher safe, handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand washing is not necessary, but recommended. Do not pour boiling, stovetop water directly into handmade ware. “Pre-warming” your cup by swirling warm/hot tap water prior to pouring your fave hot beverage is recommended.
