I made Wood Fired Lucky 8 Mug on the potter’s wheel from an iron bearing stoneware clay and pulled the handle directly from the pot.  I added a thumb stop for comfort. The trimmed pedestal foot is stable and flat.

I dipped the mug in a Red Shino glaze I make.  The reduction of oxygen in this fire produced a rich and deep red-brown.  And adding salt to the kiln around 2350 degrees creates a soft, smooth sheen on the surface.  A golden spray of fly ash accents perfectly.  I finish off my glazing by adding a stroke or two of black slip, using a brush I made from deer tail.

Wood Fired Lucky 8 will keep the temperature hot or cold longer than those slip cast mugs that are massed produced.  You’ll never go back!

And wood firing creates a unique atmospheric, rustic surface, with a depth and subtlety that may soon become  your preferred aesthetic.  I fire to at least 2400  degrees F in my wood kiln, producing a strong and tight stoneware ceramic.

Savor your favorite beverage morning, noon, or night.  Trace the curvy lines of the waistline form while pondering world peace!  Rest your weary eyes on a soft and earthy surface.

Makes a great thank you, housewarming, holiday, birthday, and anytime gift!
