Meet Sir Hootslaot

A dapper owl who probably won’t survive a job on the fishing boats. He likes his coffee hot and has to microwave it several times to keep it at the proper temperature. He has an odd English accent that the fishermen can’t understand and it constantly talking about safety and procedures. He's determined to make it on the boats though, so when he’s finished this shift he’s going to a tattoo parlour to get a sailor Jerry style tattoo on his face.

This piece is a one of a kind hand carved mug. I created it with a fine white translucent porcelain clay, thrown on a wheel. I then Paint the piece with black ceramic paint. Then I carve through the black paint to reveal the white clay. This is a technique called sgraffito. It creates a highly textured design intended to help the owner with mindfulness and the ability to be present during the morning coffee ritual. Truly a one of a kind piece of art.  Due to the 22k gold details, this piece is not microwave safe but can be put in the dishwasher.
