This is a 12oz-14oz. stoneware mug with a piano/keyboard theme. The rim is wheel thrown and re-assembled into a hand-built, slab-constructed base that has been stamped and stretched/altered. Handle is pulled and attached after the rim is in-place and black keys have been cut from a slab and attached/scored & slipped. Interior and rim is glazed with Woo's Blue. Exterior parts are brushed-on Amaco Velvet underglaze sprayed with a couple of light coats of clear. Mug is fired to Cone 10 reduction.
This is a concept mug, developed for Nashville's music scene and various associated festivals. The design includes the possibility of a custom name imprint along the top edge of the slab construction. Estimated retail would be around $60.
