Coffee Mug - Dwell In Possibility

Coffee Mug - Dwell In Possibility - HandMade Letterpress Stamped Words & Flowers Rustic Ceramic Tea Cup - Emily Dickinson Poetry Quote

"Dwell In Possibility"
Emily Dickinson

My heart burst with joy when I first read this quote many years ago and I use it quite a bit in my Clay Art. When I came up with these Mug Designs this is one of the first Quotes I thought of: A Joy-Full Wondrous stamped Floral Motif that perfectly incorporates these Beautiful and Soaring words....Possibility is the Key...Believe!

This is a Large Wheel Thrown Mug that has been hand stamped with vintage Floral textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), for the Floral images and I used Antique Wood Letterpress stamps for the words, Butterflies & Dragonfly. The inside of the Mug is painted with 3 layers of a Wondrous Sky Blue, has my signature black swirly-cue, and it has been glazed, so it is beverage/food safe! I have purposely left the clay unglazed on the outside, but it has been stained with a food safe Jet Black and the stamped design is highlighted with colorful glazes. It is such an awesome textural sensation to hold the cup and rub your fingers across the indented letters/flowers, plus it visually looks really cool with the glazed inside and handle which is a bright and Sunny Yellow and has the word BELIEVE written on it in black. The bottom of the mug is signed and dated with black glaze by yours truly....

The finished mug holds a Generous 18 ounces of whatever liquid, and stands almost 5" tall and is about 3 1/4" wide at the top, not including the handle.

*´♥.•NOTE ~ Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are NOT a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This Wonderful Mug is such an inspiring and upbeat way to start your morning, lift your afternoon and/or relax and reflect with in the evening.
What a Unique and FUNtastic gift for any Possibilitarian, or Yourself!!
CHEERS! :)
