Lithified Desert Mug 2. Simplified. 14 ounces.
This mug was made to resemble a desert landscape, but a slightly simplified version of my previous Lithified mugs.
The rocky foundation was applied to the exterior of a wheel thrown mug and allowed to begin cracking, guiding where I sculpted and carved the fragmented facade. Embellished with cacti that are perched in tiny pockets of soil. Each handle is individually carved to offer a comfortable grip.
Made with porcelain clay and high fired to 2345 degrees fahrenheit (cone ten). The interior is glazed in a satin white. The exterior "sky" is glazed in a glossy sky blue.
Hand washing is recommended, although occasional dishwasher cleaning is fine.
