Hand-thrown from Oxidising St. Thomas clay in my studio in East Bristol, before being freehand glazed in my burnt umber glaze, using a pouring method. Where the glaze is a little thicker the colour is closer to a pale green, and where it's thinner it's a deep tan-bracken reddish brown. Glazes are always so hard to describe but it's a variegated colour and very pretty!
This mug is the perfect size for tea in my opinion, with a generous handle, pulled in the traditional method from the mug body itself. The clay on the bottom half of the mug is left raw, and sanded to a soft, velvety texture. I love this style of mug and it's the one I reach to most in the studio for herbal teas in the afternoon.
