Marbled Lively Espresso, Set of 2
Each mug is built with porcelain slabs stained with green, soft pink and turquoise. They have a delicate gold luster detail. Due to the handmade nature of the technique I work with each mug is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. I invite you to see the signs of the process and connect with the natural world; earth, water, air, fire.
Each mug is carefully built, then let to dry for a couple of days. When it is completely dry it is ready for its first firing in an electric kiln. The first fire is at cone 06 (1798). The piece that comes out it is known as a “bisque”. The bisque then is glazed and fired again at cone 6 (2165). If your mug has gold luster then it was fired a third time at cone 018 (1267).
All the process takes at least 8 days. Pottery is not instant and can not be pushed. It invites you to slow down, be patient and reconnect. It is a craft that reminds us of our humanity. I hope you enjoy your mug as much as I enjoyed making it.
