A mug is a perfect piece of pottery, great to collect and even better to use. It holds all your favorite beverages, coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, the list goes on. For a potter it allows for a lot of creativity. This mug is very fun with hand drawn alligator saying "Somebody in Florida loves you" inspired by my family and friends in other states.
It's wheel thrown and speckled clay. The illustrations are painted with underglaze and left unglazed for a fun texture. The remainder of the mug is glazed in white inside and out and fired to a temperature of 2200 degrees which brings out the fun speckles in the clay. The mug is microwave and dishwasher safe. The mug holds 16 ounces and the measurements are 4.5 in height, 4 in width and 4.5 in length.
