Tankette mug in Periwinkle
When a mug is too small and a tankard too large, a Tankette is just what you need for your morning coffee or tea. I glazed this cup in a satin periwinkle blue with a glossy interior. Even large, an elegant cup for everyday.
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.
The handle is 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, multi-glazed, and fired twice for your using pleasure.
- Approx. 5 1/4" h x 5" l x 4" d; holds 19 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.
