Wood-fired salt-glaze, scrafitto decorated through porcelain slip under a willow ash glaze. Wheel-thrown black stoneware, fired to 1300C. This generous mug holds a copious cuppa, 350ml or a good half pint. The pot has been fired on the top shelf, so it’s been hot, and had a rich blast of salt and fly-ash. Hence the wonderful maturation of glaze surface. I love the way in which this softens the sprigs and foot. The pot is fired on 3 refractory alumina wadds, hence the decorative halos and scar to it’s base. These serve to elevate and separate the pot from the shelf to prevent it binding. The liner glaze to the inside is the same ash glaze as the outside. The incidental glaze drip on the underside of the handle is an ideal nodule to support the user’s second or third finger, providing the perfect sipping grip!
