This pot is a jewel. It was fired for four days in a wood burning kiln, opposed to all of my other pottery that is simply fired in a computerized electric kiln. This pottery surface reminds me of the images of the dwarf planet Pluto that were taken by the New Horizons Spacecraft. The four day long wood-firing gives this pot intricate colors that can never be duplicated on any other pot.
The lunar cups are designed to be cozy, unique and a pleasure to use for drinking water, wine or any other cold or warm beverages the cosmos has to offer. Hot beverages will heat the cup and your hand, so a mug with a handle is recommended for hot coffee or tea.
All of our Stoneware and porcelain pottery is 100% food and dishwasher safe. Lunar pottery is completely microwave safe.
How We Price Pottery
Each piece of artwork is priced relative to the time and materials required for creation. Intricate colors, textures and shapes generally take far longer to create, requiring higher prices. We hope that enough pottery styles are available so any of you can find artwork within your price range.
