These pottery coffee mugs are hand thrown by me Milly Welsh of Zwellyn Pottery. After they dried out to the point where they are considered “leather hard”, I applied a black underglaze. Once that dried, I also hand carved each mug in my swirl style. This is a technique called sgraffito. They are made with a speckled clay body and fired to mid-range in an electric kiln.
Stoneware Mug Color Options:
They come in a range of colors on the inside, including
- light blue
- dark blue
All Zwellyn Pottery coffee mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
The outside of the mugs are glazed with a thin application of a glaze called oatmeal.
Sizes will vary but they are generally about 4.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide. The hold approximately 16oz of fluid. Keep in mind that sizes will vary because this is a handmade item.
All of the glazes used on the Swirl Sgraffito style stoneware mugs are made with lead free glazes!
When I carve these mugs, I don’t like to think to much. I let the unconscious energy of the universe take over. No two are exactly alike, they are all one of a kind.
Looking for a travel mug, we have those in this style as well.
These also available on my Etsy store.
