Beautiful woodfired mug by Donna Pioli. Donna is known for imbuing her work with feminine, playful details. Carefully handcrafted out of porcelain or stoneware clay, her pieces are brought to life by a wood-fueled Naborigama, a climbing kiln with a series of chambers built going up a slope to capture and concentrate the heat as it rises. A time consuming process, the wood fueled kiln must be stoked continuously by hand, usually for days! The natural wood ash from the firing process melts onto the surface of the pottery during the firing, giving the clay earthy golden hues and the glazes rich luscious depth. This mug is glazed with a black glaze and a shino, a traditional Japanese glaze with a semi-matte finish that ranges in color from yellow and orange to grey and white. Microwave and dishwasher friendly.
5″ tall x 3″ diameter rim, 4″ diameter at widest (not including handle)
