Description
 
ABOUT:
Majolica is a style of pottery that uses a colored clay base (in this case terracotta) and a white opaque glaze over that. On top of that designs are painted. Of course I like sheep but you'll see many other themes in what I have on the mugs, cups and dinnerware.

I based this style on a wallpaper that reminded me of a vintage or shabby chic cottage. Pretty flowers for all day use. I decided these were perfect for black and white. Still shabby chic but with a modern look.

SIZE and USE:
This mug has a comfortable handle and holds approximately 9-10 ounces of fluid.

Each item is individually hand made and glazed well. I make these items to be used. This is food safe. It is also microwave safe - Safe for top rack of the dishwasher. Though, considerate use is always recommended with any handmade one of a kind item.

PROCESS:
This is a wheel thrown terracotta mug with majolica style glazes. I have formed each one by hand on a potter's wheel. I've made pottery for a long time so each one is quite similar but there are variations in the exact form of the piece and in the painting.

Everything is made to last and fired in a kiln. Then I choose a series of glazes and colors that will help bring out the whimsy and personality of each design. I try to stick to the same glazes for each piece but I have a habit of occasionally going off script. It is then given it's second trip into the hot hot kiln to make it the sexy little item it is today.make it the sexy little item it is today.
