SALE: Iridescent Mother of Pearl Heart tumbler w/ straw hole (10 oz)

Sale price $35.00 Regular price $50.00

This heart mug was handmade on the potter's wheel. The cup is glazed in a glossy white glaze and glaze fired.

Then I apply mother of pearl overglaze and fire it for a third time for this pretty iridescent effect. There is a straw hole that should fit a standard glass or metal straw. 

NOTE: you can only fill it up to the the level where the hole is, which means you can't fill it to the rim. I still need to figure out how to make the hole in a way in which you can fill the tumbler to a higher level. For this reason this piece, which would normally be about $50+ is discounted to $35. 

Approximate dimensions:

3.5 inches across
4 inches tall

Approximately 10 oz liquid capacity

mother of pearl FAQ + care

a translucent overglaze with a beautiful iridescence shine

 ware decorated with overglazes should not be used in microwave ovens.

 this overglaze can be used on surfaces that come into contact with food and drink.

care must be taken to avoid hard scrubbing when washing overglazed ware, because of the possibility of scraping off the thin layer of luster.

treat your overglazed pieces as you would fine china. although overglazed ware will take repeated washings in a dishwasher, the overglaze will eventually wear away.
