Inspired by the idea that we are all butterflies - Strong, powerful, beautiful forces of nature. This small mug will be a reminder to spread your wings and fly among the wildflowers, make wishes on wish puffs, and show your wonderful true colors.
All mugs are designed for hugging, warming hands, holding the cup of your favorite brew close to your nose for a long slow inhale of yummy smells, and long sips while looking off and pondering your next adventure. Easy drinking and lots of pondering....
Each mug is made with a sturdy brown stoneware clay, then coated in 4 coats of hand-brushed, liquid clay pigmented with white. The base design is applied with a process using underglaze transfers. Once the transfers have dried, the fun begins. Each tiny butterfly is hand-painted using pigmented clay to create a unique and joyful vignette on each mug. Finally, the mugs are coated with 3 coats of clear glaze. Since the design is created using pigmented clay, when fired in the kiln, all of the design becomes part of the clay body of the mug. As a result, the design will never wear off, scratch, or fade. This is not a decal, all of the design work is made from clay.
Hand-thrown and hand-signed using sturdy and functional brown stoneware clay manufactured in Montana. These mugs are built to last, made to be used and bring a little smile to your day.
I create in small batches. Each piece is thrown in the likeness of the next, hand-crafted, and with hand-brushed glazing. I hope you’ll agree variations in color, small marks from the minerals and stone in the clay, or slight sways in design resulting from working with natural materials create the charm expected and treasured in handmade pottery.
Food-safe materials. Dishwasher and microwave safe, although I hand wash and shy away from microwaving my hot beverages.
