Tarantula Mug in Hematite. 17 ounces.
This mug was wheel thrown using porcelain clay and decorated with a tarantula that I sculpted.
The upper exterior is glazed with Hematite, a glaze that I developed after completing several glaze chemistry courses with Ceramic Materials Workshop. There are lots of hematite colored crystals that I can't seem to take proper photos of. They're quite lovely in person and especially in sunlight (see last photo). The interior and lower exterior are glazed in a satin white.
High fired to cone ten. Made with food safe glazes formulated in my studio and designed for regular use. Gentle hand washing is recommended, although dishwasher use is fine.
