Fish Mug With Handle And Tail Saucer With Fly
Sculpture - Porcelain
This is a high-fired porcelain Fish Mug. It is glazed with under glazes on the outside and a blue celadon glaze on the inside. Each piece is meticulously hand painted and sprayed with a fritted glaze before firing it to 2400 degrees Fahrenheit, making the clay body translucent.
This mug was hand-built from a thinly rolled slab of porcelain. When the clay is still wet it is pressed into a mold that has a fish texture. (Yes! I caught the fish). The texture varies as tactical playing, pushing and poking alters the surface. The porcelain is then cut to the required shapes and formed to my desired cup shape. No two pieces are the same. The shape alterations make this mug extremely comfortable in the hand.The handles are pressed from a salmon bone from the Salmon River in up state New York. The celadon blue interior produces a clear liquid look of extravagant beauty that enhances your beverage experience.
This is a high-fired porcelain Tail Saucer, glazed with a blue celadon. Each piece is fired to 2400 degrees Fahrenheit, making the clay body translucent.
This tail-saucer was hand-built from a thinly rolled slab of porcelain. When the clay is still wet it is pressed into the tail of the fish mold.The porcelain is then cut to the required shapes and formed to my desire. Each piece is cut, scored, and attached .No two pieces are the same. The shape alterations make this tail saucer comfortable in the hand.
I use non-toxic food safe and microwave safe glazes. They are dishwasher safe as well but I would be happier if you hand-wash them to prevent any mishaps in the dishwasher.
