Carved Dragonfly Mug
My carved dragonfly mug is a unique piece of functional art. It was created by pouring 7 layers of different coloured porcelain slip into a mould. Once released from the mould, I carved through the layers of porcelain to create the 2 dragonflies and the flowers on the sides. Next, I carved the inner lip of the mug, revealing some layers of colour and creating a comfortable thickness to drink from. Once bisque fired, I glazed the mug in a glossy clear. As the clear glaze was a little cloudier than expected, muting the colours of the dragonflies, I used a dremel to sand the glaze off the dragonflies and then sealed them with art epoxy.
These multi-layered and carved pieces take many many hours to make and I hope you agree that the results are worth the time. Hand wash only.
