Porcelain Twain Mug
This porcelain Twain mug was hand built from the finest English porcelain. I stamped Mark Twain’s quote “Sing like no one is listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like no one is watching and live like it is heaven on Earth” into its surface and a scattering of hearts on its underside. After slow-drying for a few weeks to prevent the thin porcelain from cracking, it was bisque-fired, then it was glazed with a studio-made clear gloss and glaze fired to 1240 degrees Celsius. Next, the 22k gold luster accents were painted on and it and I applied a 22k gold luster heart onto the inner rim. It was then luster fired to 740 degrees. It would be delightful to drink your favourite hot or cold beverage from and could also be used as a luminary by sitting a candle within it, which would make the letters glow from within. I hope you agree that the many many hours of work that went into creating this beautiful piece were absolutely worth it! Hand wash only to preserve the gold.
