📖 THE PROCESS:
This handmade mug starts as a single ball of clay, and is thrown on the potter's wheel. Finishing touches are added and are inspired by nature. Gentle curves around the foot mimic the movement of the ocean or a stingray, and serve as a function to catch the drippy glazes. The bottom is cut using a wire, which looks like a 'fingerprint'.
After drying, the piece is bisque fired, then multiple glazes are applied and layered, and the piece is fired a second time in the kiln to transform into a final work of art.
