Each piece is individually handmade & a one of a kind creation. As a result products will have subtle variations from one piece to the next.
The creative process
This series of mugs is the product of a meticulous wheel throwing process, where each piece is crafted into a unique shape.
It then undergoes an initial firing for a prolonged period of time, using a technique called bisque-firing done at 1020 degrees Celsius.
After the first firing, each piece is decorated and left to dry. A second glaze-firing follows at a temperature of ~1240 degrees Celsius.
The piece is then left for the stoneware to mature and the glaze to vitrify.
The result is an astounding dark red mug, covered with a beautiful turquoise glaze, resembling a an endlessly clear river stream that calms the mind.
The solid feel of the mug makes for a dazing, feel good tea experience. The glazed handle provides sturdiness and balance.
