Stoneware Clay. Food Safe Glaze from the Wood Ash in the Flames.
A wood fired mug that has been colored by flames and glazed by the ash in the fire. It was fired in an anagama (Japanese for "cave kiln") stoked with wood every few minutes non-stop for five days.
The stoneware clay used to make this cup has been formulated to take the heat of a cone 13 (approx. 2450 degrees F.) wood-firing. It is vitrified so it would not leak even without a glaze.
The ash glaze in the cup is a nice mottled yellow-green with lots of depth and variation. The color and glaze on the outside is from the the fire. In places the glaze on the lip runs down the side of the cup, creating a nice contrast between the yellow-green glaze and the syrupy gold-tan glaze from the wood ash. The gestural shape makes it almost look like it is still spinning on the wheel.
About 3 1/4 inches high and about 4 1/4 inches wide. Holds 1 1/2 cups.
Food-safe. Okay in microwave and dishwasher.
