These mugs are made in stages. They begin as a terracotta clay slab that is rolled over a vintage Michigan license plate. They are formed by hand then a plaster mold is made of the mug for slip casting. Details such as the handle and thumb piece are handmade and added. Bisque fired in a kiln, then glazed. Again to go through the kiln and fired a second time to a higher temp so the glaze will mature. It takes approximately another 24 hours to cool.
