This mug features a California quail, surrounded by swirling leaves. The image is covered in a gloss glaze, while the interior and remainder of mug is a contrasting black matte glaze.
This stoneware piece is handmade and hand-etched in my woodcut-style design, using traditional sgraffito (etching) techniques in a contemporary way.
READY TO USE: food-safe and safe for both microwave and dishwasher
