12 oz Speckled Buff Lake Superior mugs
Description: These are beautifully glazed 12 ounce mugs in glazed speckled buff stoneware. The interior is lined with a clear glaze.
Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
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 have several Green Cabin Pottery mugs and I love them all, but I always get a little bit excited when I open the cupboard and spot this one in there. It’s so beautiful but it also fits in my hand just right and holds the perfect amount of tea.
