Purple Sunset Femme Fatale Mug has a slightly-tapered waistline. I took inspiration from the way my father held his coffee cup, around the middle, instead of using the handle. Wrap your fingers around this beauty and savor your favorite beverage, hot or cold.
I made Purple Sunset Femme Fatale Mug on the potter’s wheel using an iron bearing stoneware clay, which fires out tan. A pulled handle has plenty of room for most hand sizes and added a thumb stop for extra comfort. The bottom is flat.
Using the purple matte glaze that I make, I dip the outside of the mug. Next I dip the upper portion of the mug in a red gold glaze and line the inside with the red gold glaze as well. The final touch is a light dip at the top into the green glaze I make. The sheeting of these overlapping glazes produces colors reminiscent of southwest sunsets, at least to my mind!
Makes a great housewarming, birthday, holiday, or thank you gift.
