X-Large "Landscape" Mug
This Mug is made of black clay and hand painted. The design was inspired by my drives up to Southampton art gallery, passing fields, and flowers, rolling hills and rivers. The colours and different weather on the drives and the incredible sunsets on Lake Huron all merged together on this cup. The cup holds 12-14 fluid ounces and measures 4" tall x 3.75" wide. Black clay is NOT recommended for use in the microwave (it gets VERY hot), so if you tend to microwave your hot drinks, this mug is not for you. The painting takes ages to do. The mug is then glazed inside, on the lip and the handle and glaze is handpainted on some areas. The exterior is a combination of shiny and matte.
