Beetles Porcelain Mug


This mug is wheel thrown from a beautiful, midrange porcelain. After the mug dried the insect decals were attached and pulled handle added. Once the mug dried, the foliage designs were painted in underglaze and the mug was bisque fired in the kiln. A speckled olive glaze was poured inside and the outside was painted with a thin layer of clear glaze. The mug returned to the kiln a second time for a cone 6 (about 2232F) firing during which the silica in the clay and glaze vitrified and turned to a permanent, durable gloss.

This mug can be made to order with another image on the front or a different glaze inside. If you would like to customize, please leave a note at checkout and allow 2 to 3 weeks for shipping.

Holds around 8-10 ounces.
