4 ⅛" H x 3 ⅜" Dia (12 Ounces)
The Brussels Mug’s familiar and elegant design with rounded sides, half a heart handle, and a trumpeted lip is a sublime and comforting vessel for some steaming oolong tea and a tablespoon of clover honey as the days get cold and the nights get long.
Two embossed lines circle the mug like lines of latitude, and make for extra grip and a classically subtle design choice. This hand-poured piece of bisque is unassuming in its naked pottery form, but the options are endless when it comes to glazing the piece!
Consider creating patterns and shapes on your Brussels Mug with stencils or, perhaps, a sponge shape! Use bright, vibrant colors to offset the clean and natural design of the mug! Use some grays and darker gradients to create shadows to follow the curve of the pottery to create increased dimension and depth!
Once you have designed and painted your piece, it will be dipped in a clear glaze and fired in a kiln! This step is necessary, as it seals and waterproofs the bisque! Once fired, the Brussels Mug will be more durable and hand washable.
Try the Brussels Mug for a pottery painting project! With its toned-down design, it allows for the artist to go any stylistic direction they wish! And a personalized, hand-painted version of this mug makes a great gift to friends and loved ones!
