Stoneware Canyon Mug with Saguaro. 14 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 saguaro precariously perched in tiny pockets of soil. This is specifically inspired by canyon wall saguaros in Aravaipa Canyon, AZ.
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.
Hand washing recommended although occasional dishwasher cleaning is fine. Microwave safe.
