The Celtic Cross Mug’s complex design, religious iconography, and aesthetically-pleasing body and handle make a wonderful keepsake for anyone wanting to get in touch with their Irish or Scottish heritage! This mug, with its generous proportions, makes a meaningful gift for that Gaelic gal or guy in your life!
The shape and lines of the Celtic Cross Mug are unique. The mug has convex sides for easy grip with a squared grip and an exaggerated rimmed lip. The recognizable Celtic Cross symbol is embossed on the side of the pottery, its shape reminiscent of the high crosses of Ireland and Scotland from the tenth to thirteenth centuries!
Though the Celtic Cross is most commonly associated with Ireland, it does have many roots in Scotland as well. Bring your heritage to the piece! Consider using the design and colors of the flag of Ireland (solid vertical green, white, and orange bars) or Scotland (white saltire across a blue field) to inspire your painting style for this pottery piece!
After the painting is complete, the Celtic Cross Mug will be dipped in a clear glaze and fired in a kiln to seal and waterproof the bisque. This step creates a hard exterior surface and leaves it with a glossy finish ready for hand washing!
Try the Celtic Cross Mug for your next pottery painting project! The finished mug makes a profound memento, and, properly kept, could become a treasured heirloom! Don’t forget! The Celtic Cross Mug makes a fantastic gift for your friends and family with Celtic pride!
