The artist created texture on this hand-tooled mug while still in a soft clay stage. The glaze is a shiny bbrown color with an raw clay carved band around the mug that ends on each side of the handle. High fired and finely crafted, it is dishwasher and microwave safe. Each hand carved mug is one-of-a-kind. Approximately 4 inches tall and 3.5 inches in diameter across rim.
