Medium mug with maker’s markings 1 *Salvaged Shino*
This simple mug bears the marks of it's maker's spontaneous hand- using brushstrokes and less conventionally, scratchings with a brush made of foraged pine needles!
Glazed in a Shino glaze made using locally foraged clay (click hereto read more), it is part of the new Salvaged collection.
7cm tall and 10cm in diameter, this mug comfortably holds 320ml, 400 ml 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 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.
