I made Verde Bell Curve Mug on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. I trimmed the bottom. Verde Bell Curve Mug is shaped like a bell with wider bottom for added stability! It’s reminiscent of the travel mug but shorter and fuller. I tapered the top in to keep the heat in even better and I pulled the handle directly from the mug, adding a thumb stop for extra comfort and support. The feel is smooth and tight.
After firing to bisque, I dip the mug in overlapping green and cream glazes, which I make myself. The overlap creates a pleasing and contemporary design.
Fired to 2200 degrees F. 5”H.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
