Black Bird hand thrown mug. This mug measures approx 3 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches across top. It holds about 15 ounces, The mugs keep your drink warm longer because the clay retains heat. The handles are hand pulled and fit the hand very well. Black Bird is one of our most popular patterns. The rich, dark brown is the natural color of the clay. The bird and branch are painted in a deep cobalt black and then I use a squeeze bottle with a pen tip to draw the ivory outline. It has a very folkloric feel.
