Description: Ceramic wheel thrown mug made with white stoneware clay and glazed with slate glaze. The interior is lined with a clear glaze. 

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 bowl 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.
