"Mugs have broad bases for stability, the handles are pleasingly shaped and well secured yet they retain their own character and are generous and easy to hold. All fired in the salt kiln, with salt introduced into the kiln at high temperature, the surfaces are of celadon glaze or else black slip with celadon interiors." - Patsy Healy in "Resonant Objects"
Materials: Stoneware with porcelain slip and ash glaze. Mugs are dishwasher safe.
Dimensions: H) 8cm, D) 8cm without handle, 11.5cm including handle.
