Short Diagonal Lined Mug
Created by Vaughan Nelson
This microwave and dishwasher safe mug features a line pattern on the outside. This pattern is created by applying paper cutouts to the mug before it is bisque fired. A colored slip is then added to the entire outside of the piece. Once the slip has dried, the decals are carefully peeled off leaving the pattern below. The piece is then fired for 12 hours and allowed to cool for another 12. It is then glazed by carefully painting the colors inside the negative space left by the paper decal. The piece is then dotted and fired again for eight hours. Each one will be slightly different due to the way they are made. Holds approximately 14 oz.
