Large flared mug- Salvaged shino glaze

Snakebird Designs

Regular price $55.00

This mug takes a sidestep away from the classic straight walls and flares slightly at the rim. 

Made from a blend of smooth white stoneware and unrefined fireclay, this mug’s body contains beautiful specks from the natural impurities, giving it an organic feel.

Beautiful rusty strokes of red from iron oxide wash across the interior and exterior.

Glazed in a Shino glaze made from locally foraged clay (click here to read more), it is part of the new Salvaged collection. 

7cm tall, 10cm in diameter

Comfortably holds 300ml, 380ml when full to the brim.

*Caring for the Salvaged collection*

With use over time, the vessels will adopt the colour of food and drink used in them- for instance, a coffee mug from this collection will develop a beautiful patina with age, the cracks browning and revealing themselves further with each moment spent enjoying it.

Provided you are properly washing your items after use with detergent and hot water (as we should all be doing!), this is completely hygienic and will not harbour bacteria any more than a regular piece. 

Crackle glazes are extremely beautiful, and increase the fragility of the item somewhat. Please take extra care with items from the Salvaged Collection- perhaps avoid the dishwasher and microwave for these very special items.
