Ceramic Mug Cardinal Bird Handmade Handpainted On PC Dark Green 11 Ounces MG0065 Made to Order.
One of my favorite mug designs is this cardinal sitting on the branch of a crepe myrtle tree. A new twist is the background color, it's called dark green but it's so much more than that. If I had to come up with one word to describe this color, I'd say lustrous! The glaze has such a wonderful finish and the way that it pools in the recesses of the stamped areas is spectacular. It really makes a wonderful backdrop for this red male cardinal.
Now for the particulars:
- Holds approximately 11 fluid ounces if filled to the top
- Made from soft stoneware clay, wheel thrown
- Clay and glazes are non-toxic, safe for food
- OK for the microwave and dishwasher
- This is a Made to Order listing so please allow 3-4 weeks for it to be created
The story behind the cardinal on the mug:
I live in a neighborhood that's home to a large number of cardinals. One day I was out with my camera and snapped several photos of one male sitting in a tree across the street from our house. It was spring time and there were no leaves or flowers on the crepe myrtle trees so the cardinal showed up in the shot very clearly. I was able to convert the photo to a high contrast black and white image and then used a photo sensitive sheet and converted the image into a silk screen. The silk screen helps me to have a uniform image when I make more of the cardinal mugs. After I screen the black image I hand paint the red and green onto the mug.
