This mug was wheel thrown on a kick wheel from Amador Stoneware.  A clay slip dug from my backyard was applied to the surface.  A glaze was applied to the inside and the rim of the mug.  It was fired in the wood kiln, where wood ash lands on the surface.  When the kiln reaches temperature, 2350°F and higher, the ash melts into a glaze affecting the applied glaze and slip.  With a little detective work you can determine the direction of the flames as they traveled across the piece.  .  The interior has a glaze that captures the wood ash which turns it into subtle blues and greens.

I make each piece with love and care and therefore the pieces should be treated with love and care. Although the pieces are well crafted enough to withstand dishwashers and microwaves, I recommend hand washing to ensure the longest life for the piece. Like all hand made ware, intense thermal differences can result in damage. Cold pieces should be gently pre-warmed with tepid water before filling with boiling hot water. All clay and glazes used are lead-free and are safe for food use.
