12oz Ceramic Mug

12oz Ceramic Mug

Our NOLA 12oz ceramic mug made by our friend Stick Ceramics.

How It's Made

A bespoke stoneware clay is mixed exclusively for this range, consisting of various white and black clays which includes a distinctive fine white molochite. Selected clays are cut into multiple pieces and ordered specifically; then wedged approximately 60 times per form. This ensures the clay in blended to the right tone, with minimal marble effects that makes certain that any air leaves the clay to avoid cracking in the kiln.

A 'new plaster' speckled glaze with iron flecks are used on these team mug, with each mug being hand-painted with three coats. Every piece is sanded down individually before the glaze is applied at varying thicknesses.

All ceramics are slowly fired initially to 1000 degrees, taking around 9 hours to reach this temperature, and then a further 36 hours for the kiln to cool down before opening. The second firing - glaze firing - reaches 1255 degrees in temperature, and again requires 36 hours for the kiln to cool before they are ready.
