As the official state bird of Louisiana, I added the pelican to my collection of carved animal mugs. Pelicans are known for their caring attention to their young and protection of the family. They also remind us to take time for ourselves to calmly reflect and savor what life has to offer.
I create each of my pottery mugs individually and handcarve the designs.
I leave the carving unglazed to accent the texture of the clay and details of the carving. This pelican mug is glazed with my soft, satin lace white glaze on the outside and a bright turquoise blue on the inside.
This mug is about 4 inches tall and comfortably holds 12-14 ounces.
The creamy stoneware clay is prepared to withstand your dishwasher and microwave for easy, everyday use.
Please allow some small differences in the product pictured and the items you receive. I create all of my pieces on the pottery wheel, carve and glaze each one individually. They will look very similar to the images in this listing, but each handmade piece is unique!
