About twice a year I decide I'm DONE with ceramics. It's usually after a handle cracks when I've dried a mug too fast, or if a glaze is too thick on a freshly fired plate, or when I'm staring at a huge wholesale order of ceramics knowing that I'll never make more than 10 bucks an hour on this stuff. But about 5 minutes later I'm grabbing a fresh bag of clay with a smile on my face. 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.
