This 8 oz mug was thrown on the wheel, then the handle and creature were attached before it was fired in an anagama kiln for ten days. It is lined with a food safe glaze on the inside and the outside is decorated with natural wood ash- a beautiful product of wood firing. The cozy warmth of the fire is visible in sweet variations of reds, grays and browns and you can see the path of the flame as is swirled around the mug in the kiln.
