Stoneware Canyon Mug with Lichen Wash. 14 ounces.
I was focused primarily on mimicking the structure and surface of a desert canyon wall with this mug, trying to capture its solidity and fragility. I sculpted a cracking and fragmented facade with loose rocks that look a bit precarious in spots and added a bit of color to the surface to simulate lichen.
Made with stoneware clay and high fired to 2345 degrees fahrenheit (cone ten). The interior is glazed in aqua blue. The exterior is lightly glazed and accented with a variety of glazes.
Hand washing recommended although occasional dishwasher cleaning is fine. Microwave safe.
