If you're excited about getting a random piece of pottery made by Joel Cherrico, then this listing is for you. We have a collection of mugs, bowls, cups and vases that vary in size and shape, between 10-12oz small to 16-20oz larger sizes. They also vary in a variety of glaze styles and have a variety of visual "flaws" that warrant a discount.
These pots are still 100% functional and usable, but they have a small imperfection. Some were glaze tests that Joel was experimenting with. Most have an "S Crack" which is a small crack on the bottom, underside of the pot. It happens because Joel chooses to "Hump Throw" pottery from a large mount of clay, so the clay does not get as much compression. These cracks happen when the pot dries, before it is glazed and fired.
Many others have a crack on the lip or rim of the piece, which will not change over time now that it has been fired. These cracks were most likely caused during the greenware stage, before they were fired but only became visible when they did their normal shrinking in the firing process.
Joel decides to glaze and fire the "S Crack" pottery because these cracks don't affect function. The pots are still 100% usable and safe. The cracks never change, they don't expand and they don't need to be filled with anything. They're simply an annoying visual and texture flaw, which are a natural part of the pottery process.
I apologize that we can not take requests for the type of mug you want, as this is a "Random" sale and the pieces of pottery need to be chosen from a random assortment. However, if you have a disability or special need, please email us at email@example.com and we will do our best to accommodate you with a proper size and weight mug.
All of our Stoneware and Porcelain pottery is non-toxic, safe for food and drink, and meant to be used and enjoyed daily.
