Large Grid Dot Mug
Created by Peter Karner
Hand-thrown functional porcelain fired in a hard-brick kiln to 2300 F in a heavy reduction atmosphere. Patterns are created free-hand and are applied in multiple layers using methods such as wax-resist and brushwork to imbue the patterns with depth. The base glazes that Karner decorates on are designed to capture carbon from the atmosphere of the kiln. This "carbontrap" effect is random and adds tremendously to the overall energy of a piece. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Holds approximately 20 oz.
