Cardinal Pottery Mug, Ceramic Stoneware Coffee Tea Cup, Hand Painted Bird, Christmas Gift
My handmade, hand-painted stoneware cardinal bird pottery mug is a beautiful gift for coffee and tea lovers. Each cup is 100% handmade and wheel-thrown. I hand painted with bright, non-toxic glaze. The bird is outlined with the cuerda seca wax method. A functional piece of ceramic pottery makes a beautiful gift for housewarming, Mother’s Day, birthday, Christmas, hostess, and more!
Once the clay was bone dry, I fired to bisque in my small home studio kiln. Bisque firing takes about 13 hours. Once the bisque firing is complete, the final glaze is hand painted, allowed to dry, and then fired again in the final stage (another 10+ hours).
The photo shows the actual piece you will receive. Expect slight perfect-imperfections, as each piece is 100% made by hand.
In order to prolong the durability, I recommend hand washing with mild detergent, like Dawn.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
The glaze is non-toxic and food safe.
Ceramics should be handled with care, as they can break, chip, or crack if dropped.
Give as a gift, or bring some original artwork to your own decor with a unique and beautiful mug!
