The mug is cast in porcelain, it is lightweight with a nice thin rim for drinking from. The hand-painted, dual coloured band along the base is left unglazed exposing the quality of the coloured clay, and giving it a lovely, tactile quality. In contrast, the rest of the mug is glazed with a clear shiny glaze. The mug has a big, comfortable to hold handle and is perfect for a big warming cup of tea or coffee.
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
