Swift Mug // Black Clay

44.00

About the Mug: Wheel thrown stoneware mug. Brushed cream slip over Vaux swift design.  The inside is glazed with a white glossy liner glaze. I used a diamond sanding pad to sand the outside smooth and velvety to the touch. A smaller sized mug, this will hold approximately 12 ounces of liquid. 

About the Design: The Vaux swift is a migratory bird that travels through my hometown, Portland, Oregon every spring and fall, roosting in chimneys and hollowed trees as it goes.  It’s a favorite fall activity to take a picnic dinner to one of their roosting spots and watch their nightly dramatic swirling flight before they bed down for the night.

This design was created using stencils and cream colored slip (slip is clay that has been watered down to paint consistency).  Each stencil was applied by hand then a textural layer of slip was painted on before removing the stencils to reveal the black clay beneath.  

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