12 oz Dark Green Rimmed Speckled Lake Superior Mug
Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
These are beautifully glazed mugs in speckled stoneware. The interior is lined with a clear glaze and they are rimmed with French Green glaze.
Approximate Size: 10cm x 9cm (4x3.5") holds 10-12 ounces.
It is made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each mug is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the mug to give it a better finish and create a bottom rim. Every mug goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the pottery is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the mug and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item. Once cooled, the bottom is sanded for a smooth finish.
I was given this beautiful mug for Christmas 2021, by a wonderful friend. At first I was so excited by the "Superior" workmanship and Wawa captured style; but it has quickly became my favorite mug. Its so comfortable as an everyday mug, because of it's well thought out design. Thanks so Much Cynthia!!
