I made Joshua Tree Barrel Mug 2 on the potter’s wheel from an iron-bearing stoneware clay.  The clay is a toasty tan color when fired to its maturity.  I pulled the handle directly from the body of the mug and added a thumb rest for extra comfort.  The handle is comfortable – not too thin not too thick.  The bottom is flat.

Joshua Tree Barrel Mug 2 helps keeps your favorite beverage hot or cold.  Liquid flows smoothly from the inside curve to your mouth.

Starting with a red iron wash, rubbed into the exterior of the mug, I dip 2/3 of the mug in a red gold glaze that, to me, evokes feelings of a desert landscape.  Next I overlap the red gold glaze at the upper portion of the mug with a green glaze that I make.  Results in a sheeting of sorts.  The red gold is matte and soft to the touch.  The red iron wash is a bit more coarse.  The overall feel is comfortable, like a worn, western blanket.

Makes a great housewarming, birthday, holiday, or “thank you” gift.

All of my mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
