Bike shaped pasta and textured paper are pressed into the clay before firing. A ceramic stain is rubbed into impressions before applying the glaze resulting in the artist's signature "drippy" design! Since these are individually handmade, there will be small variations such as unround shape, tiny cracks or glaze variations that do not impact the function or structure of the piece. The description for color selection is the primary color used but is not the only color... for example, the "blue" mug may also have beautiful green, or brown, or other colors blended in. All mugs are wonderful to hold and use with comfortable handles, slightly flared rim, smooth base and a balance weighted at the bottom (very hard to tip over!). It will be your go-to mug every morning! Each handbuilt stoneware mug is made one at a time, without a potter's wheel. The making process is about 2 hours per mug, and drying must happen very slowly to avoid warping and cracking. Each mug is unique in shape, design, and coloring, and holds approximately 11 oz filled to the rim. Fired to over 2200 degrees F, it meets the glaze manufacturer’s specification for food safety and is lead-free. The stoneware is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe. Stovetop or freezer use is not recommended. The artist's mark is on the bottom. These mugs are a beautiful bike-themed way to drink your morning coffee or other favorite beverage!
