I have about 12 years of ceramic work under my belt and I have always felt this way - I hate making glaze! It's pretty cool that I have the power to create all kinds of surfaces and can mix up glaze at a whim, but it's messy, bad for my health, tedious, and boring. I made this mug to commemorate my feelings. Women work on making glaze in front of a shelf of dry materials. Their respirators hide their dissatisfaction. This mug holds about 12 oz of coffee, tea, wine, or tequila.
Each piece is wonkily handbuilt and hand-drawn. Each line and color is done by me! If you are looking for a pristine piece of handmade ceramics then this is not it! It is built securely but with character. It is food and microwave safe, but I would recommend lovingly hand-washing it. Each piece is one of a kind, made out of earthenware clay and sgraffito-ed with goofy imagery.
