Mug - California Quail and Poppies #1
This is one of my "California Mugs," featuring a design of two traditional techniques – mishima and sgraffito – used to create contemporary imageryof quail and poppies.
After throwing the form on the potter's wheel, I etch line drawings of poppies and quail into the raw clay. Underglaze is then laid into the lines, followed by painting the quail and etching further designs. The last step before the first firing is adding highlights of orange, yellow and green. After the bisque firing, the piece is clear-glazed on the outside and glazed with a deep teal blue on the inside.
This mug is meant to be used. It is food-safe and safe for microwave and dishwasher. Art to use and enjoy every day!
