Stoneware Canyon Mug with Cacti. 10 ounces.
I was focused primarily on mimicking the structure and surface of a canyon wall with this mug, trying to capture its solidity and fragility. I sculpted a cracking and fragmented facade with loose rocks, punctuated with cacti precariously perched in tiny pockets of soil.
Made with stoneware clay and high fired to 2345 degrees fahrenheit (cone ten). The interior is glazed in white. The exterior is lightly glazed.
Hand washing recommended although occasional dishwasher cleaning is fine. Microwave safe.
