Etched Cobalt Blue Mug
One of a kind, this cobalt mug is handmade in Portland, ME by Textured Porcelain. Porcelain clay is thrown and then hand-carved to create a textured surface. A glossy, cobalt glaze is applied and then gently wiped to allow the white porcelain to show through, accenting the rich color. The bottom of the mug features a dotted texture with a contrasting yellow glaze.
