I admit, I’ve been watching WAY too much Svengoolie. This mug is inspired by my love of old horror movies.
This mug is a lot of fun! It was made on the pottery wheel, then when it dried out a bit, I applied a black underglaze and carved the alien invasion design out. This technique is called sgraffito and is similar to a block print.
The scene on this mug depicts an alien invasion. There is an alien close up with a malicious stare and a ray gun and in the background are flying saucers. One is abducting a man.
The mug is 3.75 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide with the handle. It holds 14 oz of your favorite beverage.
