Wheel thrown ceramic mug in a blue glaze with whale decoration
If you walk along the coast of Ireland you might be luckily enough to see whales passing. This whale mug uses paper resist with sgraffito decoration with create the whales on a background of brushstrokes in a multiple of blues. As each is done by hand so they vary. But each has two whales with air bubbles swimming in a blue sea. The whale mug is finished with a blue glaze inside and above the decoration. As long as you are careful of the handle ( which is true of all mugs) they will be safe to use in a dishwasher. I make my picture mugs in small batches in my pottery in Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim.
