Bees in the Poppies Mug // Gold Bluff Clay

44.00

Wheel thrown stoneware mug with an underglaze decorated bee and poppy bud design. The inside is glazed with a peachy pink glossy liner glaze; the outside is peach underglaze and raw golden stoneware clay body with very light speckling. I used a diamond sanding pad to sand the outside smooth and velvety to the touch.

Bees are a powerhouse pollinators that our food supply depends on but many colonies have died unexpectedly in recent years. Climate change and wide spread use of pesticides are suspected. Poppy’s are native to California but have crept northward with the aid of gardeners, and rising temperatures. Besides being beautiful images to use on a mug, both the bee and the poppy are signs of the effects of climate change. My hope in creating this mug is to spread awareness and hopefully spur action to a more sustainable future for our planet.

This listing is for the piece pictured. It is microwave and dishwasher safe but as dishwashers are hard on ceramics, hand washing will prolong the life of your piece. It is handmade and as such each piece is unique and beautifully imperfect. Thank you so much for choosing handmade!
