Kate Brigden Rye Ceramic Mug



Kate Brigden Rye Ceramic Mug

These mugs are handcrafted in Kate’s garden studio in Sussex, England. Every mug is hand painted, so each one is a little unique. This mug holds around 8oz of liquid and has a rounded bottom.

This pattern is called ‘Rye’, it is painted with a grey pigment onto a white glaze. The speckles come from little flecks of iron within the body of the clay. When the piece fired it creates a lovely effect on the surface of the piece.

PLEASE NOTE this clay is a little unpredictable and can have quite have a rough rustic surface, which is one of the reasons I like it but if you want a smooth surface to you mug then this might not be the mug for you.

Each piece is hand thrown on a pottery wheel and then left to dry a little, the underside is then trimmed and tidied. It is then left to dry out and ready for its first firing. Once fired it is then dipped in glaze and hand-painted. The piece is then ready for its final firing in the kiln.

This range is made from iron rich stoneware clay. All my pottery is food-safe, hard-wearing and suitable for microwaves and dishwashers.

Each piece is handmade on a pottery wheel and then hand-painted so there may be slight variation in size and colour and there may be very minor imperfections. I make my pottery in small batches so you will not necessarily receive the exact item pictured.
