Agave Cactus Pottery Coffee Mug, Handmade Sgraffito Carved Cup, Hand Painted Succulent Earthenware
My handmade agave cactus pottery mug is perfect for cowboy coffee and tea lovers. This beautiful cup is hand carved, hand drawn, and hand painted with glaze. It is a functional piece of ceramic pottery and makes a beautiful housewarming, birthday, hostess gift, and more!
I sculpted the mug by hand, using the slab building method. I hand-drew and carved the images, and hand painted each with several layers of underglaze. 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. Dishwasher use is not recommended and do not microwave. 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 kitchen with a unique and beautiful mug!
