Shiny Brown Mug with Circles
In this series of mugs, I explored a bellied and fluted shape so that it would be enjoyable to hold when not using the handle. The interior is glazed in bright white to allow the user to easily view the colour and tone of their hot beverages. The overall glaze colours are a combination of a Pheonix overlapped by Rosie's Red. The rim is twice dipped in the Rosie's Red to create a subtle banding feature. I love the little irregular line as the colour melts down into the white interior. The circular design was created using wax resist to reveal the clay underneath and to protect the hand-painted coloured glazes as the mug was twice dipped. This is one of a pair.
Glaze: Rosie's Red and Pheonix
Size: Dia. 3" X H 5" (W 5" is handle)
