Great gift for a nature-loving friend. A squirrel sits under a tree, ready to climb up the trunk as leaves swirl around the scene.
This stoneware mug is handmade and hand-etched using traditional sgraffito (etching) techniques in a contemporary way to create pattern and movement.
After etching, the imagery was covered with a clear gloss. The remainder of the mug and interior has a black matte glaze that gives a pleasing contrast to the imagery.
READY TO USE: food-safe and safe for both microwave and dishwasher
COLLECTING and USING: Great entry into starting a collection of pottery from contemporary makers. It is art you can use every day, and surrounding yourself with handmade objects is good for the soul!
