The Stone & Rose Mug is a thrown and hand-sculpted mug, both processes were used. The Stone & Rose Mug was thrown on the wheel by Kimberly Koltcz and then altered by hand for the design to give a stony appearance with inset alcoves for the roses. The handle was hand-pulled and altered to make it more vine-like. This mug is made from low-fire clay (Longhorn White), however, since it is completely coated in Stroke & Coat food-safe glaze it is both food and dishwasher safe. This is not a perfectly round mug due to the sculptural nature and altering by hand- the opening is more oval, while thrown mugs are typically perfectly rounded, the manipulation of the clay by hand made it less so- that is by design. We hope you enjoy the look of this thrown and hand-sculpted mug.
