The meat and potatoes diet did Ol’ Walt in.
This piece of art starts as a ball of clay, this one is hand built , trimmed, handled and once dry I hand carved the images into the mug using a variety of carving tools. It will go through its first firing in the kiln which takes 12 hours. I will apply a clear glaze to each piece which gives it the glossy texture and back in the kiln for another 9 hours. Once this firing is complete I apply a gold lustre which requires another 3 hours in the kiln. Each piece takes between 3 - 6 weeks to make and no two pieces ever turn out the same. Please do not microwave or put this piece in the dishwasher.
. I use a translucent white porcelain. If you are like me, and enjoy sitting in the sun while you have your morning coffee, you will notice that the sun shines through the body of the mug, it just makes the morning extra beautiful.
