Pottery ceramic porcelain coffee or tea mug with yellow daisies.
The Daisy mug is made out of porcelain with soft pastel colors The glazes are painted on, much like a painter on his canvas. I like to keep the color application impressionistic like Van Gogh or Monet. Each piece is handmade with up to 10 glazes that is fired for 24 hours in a gas reduction kiln.
The size is 4 1/2″ x 3″ x 4 1/2″ tall. It holds 14 oz of liquid. Since this is hand built, the cup may not be perfectly round. My pottery is food, dishwasher and microwave safe.
Porcelain is a type of clay that fires at a very high temperature and will remain fairly white. My glazes are hand mixed to complement each other and many pieces have over 6 glazes working together. I fire to Cone (^) 9 in a large gas reduction kiln, which gets to 2350 degrees F. This type of firing is not computerized and I use my eyes, ears and nose to adjust temperature. I watch the flame to make sure it’s the right color and listen to the roar it makes. There should always be a slight odor of gas. It takes about 40 hours firing from start to finish.
This type of high firing makes the perfect piece for everyday usage in the kitchen or as tableware.
