I create these mugs using a slab building technique. Every single piece is handcut and joined to form a conical shape. These mugs are made in a natural colour stoneware clay body. The surface of the mug has been drawn and handcarved followed by dipping in a food safe glaze with a glossy finish. Featuring some simple flowers inspired in Mid Century patterns.
The mug’s volume capacity is 450 ml and measures 9.5 cm (H) x 8 cm (diameter) at top 10 cm base.
- Food safe
- Hand wash preferable
All work is made with cone 6 stoneware. They are handcarved, handpainted utilising food safe glazes and underglazes. All my ceramics are distinctively unique.
Sustainability: Alma Terra products are ethically made by me in my backyard studio, I care about the environment and the footprint on earth, I only use Australian raw materials and products instead of flying them form different parts of the world, I support Australian businesses only. I recycle and reuse water from the studio to water the veggie garden right outside my creative space. Every left over of clay is recycled until I collect a sufficient amount to make more ceramic pieces. The kiln is run on solar power to fire my work to minimise the demand from electricity.
I use new and repurposed cardboard boxes and recyclable and biodegradable packing materials only.
Alma Terra Ceramics are produced with passion and devotion in the North East Victoria in the beautiful Ovens Valley.
