Porcelain Fossil Mug with Quartz. 15 ounces.
I included a fossil in this imagined limestone canyon, rich with calcium carbonate (which happens to be a very common ingredient in ceramic glazes, in the earth's crust, and in fossils).
At sometime in the future, modern humans will occupy a small sliver of the geologic record of life forms that once inhabited this amazing planet. I find this knowledge humbling and makes me feel grateful for existing at all.
Made with porcelain and high fired to 2345 degrees fahrenheit (cone ten). The interior is glazed with a glossy aqua blue. The exterior is lightly glazed and accented with aqua blue. Small quartz crystals are embedded in pockets of the canyon wall.
Gentle hand washing recommended. Food safe.
