Handmade, wheel-thrown porcelain mug with sgraffito and mishima bees and flowers with carved and painted botanical background.
Inside is glazed with a food safe clear glaze.
Outside also glazed clear, except for main design, which is left matte.
Capacity (oz): 18
Height (inches): 4.5
Width (including handle, inches): 5
Inside diameter of rim (inches): 2.5
This piece is discounted because of a small black raised fleck inside on the bottom (likely a shaving of carved black underglaze that fell into the mug before the final glaze firing). Still food safe and doesn't affect the function of the mug, but is a aesthetic "quirk".
I have been watching for ages and finally made a purchase! It is so beautiful. Beautifully crafted, beautifully manifested. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!
