· Inside is glazed in a rich earthy glossy green-tea color.
· Faint "2012 gem" inscription under the glaze underneath the foot.

Very lightweight, fine-walled, thrown on the potter's wheel. White stoneware close to porcelain; the clay comes from North Carolina. Lead-free glazes mixed at my school, fired to around 2200° Fahrenheit for a vitreous watertight finish. Dishwasher, microwave, consumption safe. Please treat it carefully as you would other china.
Imperfections are the nature and charm of handmade work.
