This listing is for one mug with a horse design.
The mug was thrown on the potter’s wheel and the horse was hand-painted on before firing. The mug is made from stoneware clay was fired in an electric kiln to cone 6. Liquid gold was painted on the mug for a third firing to adorn the horse in real 18 karat gold. The mug was painted with a mother of pearl over glaze and fired a 4th time to give the rainbow iridescent finish.
- 5.55” tall x 3.5” wide
- Holds up to 16 oz of your favorite beverage.
- Food Safe
- NOT safe for microwave or dishwasher (see details below)
The glaze is a creamy buff color on the outside with my cobalt blue and white glaze on the inside and flowing over the outside with a hand-painted dressage horse & rider. Parts of the white area have a satiny feel to the surface. Where the gold is painted over the satin areas, it also has a satin feel (towards the head).
The mug is NOT microwave and dishwasher safe. Due to the addition of REAL GOLD this mug should NOT go in the microwave (it’s metal) and dishwasher use is not recommended due to strong chemicals that are often found in detergents that could wear away the gold over time.
More mugs are available upon request as a custom order.
