Carved Hummingbird Mug
My carved hummingbird 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 hummingbirds and the flowers on the sides and more flowers on its base. 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. I added art epoxy with glittery mica into the petals of some of the flowers between the birds.
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.
