This stoneware mug or medium-sized cup is a work of high craftsmanship, of elaborate and careful design in all its details. All the mugs are unique, but maintain a similar size. In this way it is possible to create sets that keep a relationship by color. You can also choice some of several different colors that form a contrasting group of pieces.
This mug is of an appropriate size for milk coffee, american coffee, tea, herbal infusions, fruit juices, refreshments, etc. It has a capacity of approximately two glasses. It has a size of about 10 cm (c. 4") high by 9 cm (c. 4") in diameter plus about 4 cm (c. 1 1/2") of the handle. This have a small turn around at the bottom that supports the finger, thus avoiding touching the mug that could be hot. The base is unglazed, it is something that is normal for handmade ceramic pieces. This is not a problem since the clay is vitrified and is practically waterproof. It is also polished so cannot affect the surface of the furniture if used properly.
This mug is made of stoneware, like the other cups, mugs and tumblers of different sizes, and the stoneware bowls, plates, etc. All made to be used with food found in this store. Porcelain with a normal thickness walls and stoneware are the materials used to manufacture the restaurant and home tableware. That makes them food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe, and resistant to sudden temperature changes. There are other pieces like porcelain bowls or salad bowls that also share these characteristics.
Porcelain is a harder material than stoneware, although it is more delicate to work with. It allows to make thinner walls and can be translucent. This makes it perfect for special pieces and lamps and not so much for everyday use ware as those of stoneware or porcelain with normal thickness walls.
I prepare myself the glazes with high quality industrial raw materials. They have balanced formulas so that they melt properly on the piece in the final firing. Thus they are transformed into colored glass, they become in an inert material that does not be altered with the acids of some foods, nor with sudden changes in temperature, etc. The interior has a glaze formulated to properly blend with the paste of the piece. So no cracking should form.
I have glazed this one with a very fluid matte white on the top third with the edge with dark turquoise glaze over. When melted in the kiln, the two colors mix and react with the dark red glaze of the bottom. Creating unique and unrepeatable effects. Below you can find other mugs that might interest you as well. I select them because they have similar color combinations to make pairs or sets of pieces.
