The starburst glaze adds a minor bumpy texture but is so beautiful that we decided to keep it in this combo.
SPECS: 2 3/4 inches wide at the rim, 6 inches tall and holds 19 oz.
This elegant mug allows you to hold the cosmos in your hands. Much more than just a coffee mug, this is a true work of art. The glaze evokes images of distant stars and glowing blue and purple nebulae. The notch at the rim is meant to tuck the teabag string into so it doesn't fall into the scalding water. It has a comfortable 4 finger handle and its gently sloped sides make holding this cup a delight as you sip a steamy brew.

~Made on the wheel with Laguna B-Mix clay and food safe glazes.
~Although, technically, my pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe, we do not recommend it since they are works of art that should be treated with care. The dishwasher may, over time, dull the sheen of the glaze. As with any handmade pottery, avoid leaving it in a sink of water, which will seep into any exposed clay. If a piece that has water in it is microwaved, it may crack. Although it is a rare occurrence, ceramics can fracture from thermal shock. To avoid this possibility, fill your cup or mug with hot tap water as you are heating your tea water to warm the mug before adding boiling water. If handled properly, these pieces are intended to last many lifetimes, like treasured family heirlooms. We recommend hand washing your pieces and avoiding the microwave.
