Stamped mug w. Butterflies in Frost gloss
A Victorian mod mug with butterflies! I glazed this cup in a glossy light turquoise and brushed dot detail within each butterfly in alternating navy, sky blue, green, and olive. This is about the celebration of summer and the butterfly as an important pollinator in our ecosystem. Enjoy your beverage with thoughts of warm weather year-round in this sophisticated, yet delightful handmade cup.
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.
- Approx. 4" h x 5 1/4" l x 3 3/4" d; 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.
Note: If your order costs less to pack & ship, I reimburse overages.
