Charmed - A sculptural tea cup beautifully glazed in assorted colors.
These tall mugs have a sort of tile-like exterior. Each "tile" is randomly shaped. The surface is not exactly flat like tiles are but rather is more fluid or undulating. Yet each "tile" is connected to form the exterior surface of the mug. The interior of the mug is smooth in finish.
The glaze is hand applied and each mug is unique in its look. Having a set of them, you can really see the difference and appreciate the beauty of the workmanship.
Each Charmed mug weighs 13 ounces.
