Handmade coffee mug Pumpkin Mug. This pumpkin mug is made out of Stoneware white clay and glazed with an Brown and Orange glaze duo with a mint green handle. I threw it on the wheel from a ball of clay. After throwing is on the wheel I let it dry a bit then manipulated it making it look like a pumpkin, trimming the foot, and adding a hand pulled handle. I made a pinched pumpkin and set it on top of the handle for added cuteness. Glaze and Stoneware Clay are lead free, and food safe. 3.25 X 5 X 3.5 Though I state it is dishwasher safe I prefer to wash my mugs by hand to make sure they aren't bumped around and damaged. After all dish washers aren't as gentle as I am when washing them, and they are made out of breakable material. I offer free shipping for all my items. How do I ship my items you may be asking? Well all of the items I make are very fragile, or should I say they break very easily when bumped or handled roughly. I use the USPS postal service, and we all know that no delivery service is gentle. They just try to get the package where it's going, and I'm thankful for their service. For this reason I make a great effort to ensure your item will reach you in great shape. I wrap each item in bubble wrap, and stabilize it in a box. If I feel it needs to be double boxed I put the first box in another box with more packing supplies on all sides. All my pottery items are handmade from a piece of raw clay and either thrown on the wheel, slab built, or sculpted by me. My pottery is fired in an programmable electric kiln a minimum of 2 times. I bisque firing to a cone 04, or 1945 degrees. I then wait a day for the kiln to cool down to 120 degrees or cooler, then brush glaze on the piece to create a one of a kind work of art. I love my works of art to be functional as well. After the item is glazed and has dried I'll fire it again reaching the temperature the clay it's made out of it matures which depending on the clay can be 2167 to 2262 degrees. This makes the item microwaveable and safe to use. All these factors are very important to me and my pottery business. I don't skimp, in fact my motto is "Be the task great or small, do it well or not at all."
