Rattlesnake Sgraffito Pottery Mug, Black, Red, White, Pottery Handmade Earthenware, Hand Carved Southwest Texas Desert Coffee Cup, Rustic
My handmade rattlesnake coffee mug
is a unique gift for nature lovers. This one-of-a-kind ceramic cup is individually handcrafted, hand carved, and hand painted with non-toxic glaze. It is a functional piece of ceramic pottery and makes the perfect gift for Christmas, birthday, Friendsgiving, housewarming, and more! Use as a drink cup for your favorite hot or cold beverages.
I sculpted the clay by hand, hand carved the image and texture, and hand painted with glaze. 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 this piece is made by hand.
In order to prolong the durability, I recommend hand washing with mild detergent if needed. 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 this beautiful mug!
