Sarah Bak - Mountain Mug
Using a handmade pottery mug that reminds you of a day in the mountains is a great way to start your day. This porcelain cup is perfect for tea, coffee, hot cocoa or your favorite warm beverage. The curved shape gives the cup more volume, and has a comfortable handle.
This mug holds approximately 12-14 oz. of your favorite hot or cold beverage. All of my pottery is made for easy use, and is dishwasher safe and microwaveable.
A little bit of info about the process: After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom trimmed of excess material and the handle is added, I paint on the design using lead free underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, a clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees.
