Humming Bird and Salal Mug // Canyon Clay

48.00

About the Mug: Wheel thrown stoneware mug. Brushed peach underglaze over salal leaves and hummingbird design.  The inside is glazed with a peachy pink glossy liner glaze; the outside is peach underglaze and raw golden orange stoneware clay body.  I used a diamond sanding pad to sand the outside smooth and velvety to the touch.  A larger sized mug, this will hold a generous 16 ounces of liquid.

About the Design: Humming birds are a common sight in my garden; I even have a little nest I found on the sidewalk one day.  Even though they don’t have the prettiest singing voice, I welcome these little pollinators. 

Like ferns, Salal bushes are also everywhere in the western cascades region.  But even though common, they have a secret.  Many people don’t know that their berries are edible and for the most part, delicious.  The flavor varies quite a bit from plant to plant but overall, I’ve found them to be really good and they pair well with blueberries and huckleberries, particularly when cooked together in a fruit crisp.  They have been a staple crop for the native peoples who have stewarded this land for thousands of years. 

Taking Care: 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!
