Salal Mug // Speckled Clay

48.00

About the Mug: Wheel thrown stoneware mug with white Salal leaf design. Glazed with a satin cream glaze that show cases the speckled clay body. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Holds a generous 16 ounces.

About the Design: 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. 

This design was created using stencils and white slip (slip is clay that has been watered down to paint consistency).  Each stencil is hand designed and cut based on my own drawings and rubbings of Salal leaves.

  This listing is for the piece pictured and is ready to ship.
