White Portrait Pottery Mug

Regular price $35.00

This listing is for one handmade ceramic coffee mug !

White portrait carved on a gray folded pottery mug in sgraffito technique.
This mug is a great housewarming gift for your loved one.

This earthy, hand folded, taupe clay mug is the perfect cup for your morning tea or coffee. It is wonderful for cold drinks as well.

What’s special about these handle-less mugs is the portrait images that I have hand carved using the sgraffito* technique on the outside. Each cup has a different portrait of a beautiful person from a different culture from somewhere in the world.

I love these cups! If you want to buy just this one cup (pictured in photo #2), add this item to your cart ↗. But I would love to make you a set with all different portraits! I will soon be listing a set for sale In the meantime message me about a custom order.

*Sgraffito: a form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in slip on ceramics before firing.

≜ Custom handmade pottery may vary from sample images. This slight variation makes each piece truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
≜ Glaze colors may also appear differently on various computers or screen devices, or in changed lighting. All images are taken in a natural indirect sunlight.

Materials: gray stoneware, matt glaze, porcelain slip.
