Woodfire mug with shino glaze and wood ash

Dimensions: 5”w x 4”w x 3 3/4”t

Aside from the shino glazed comfortable one finger handle most of the complex surface of this mug is matte.  There’s a patch of mustard yellow/green lichen pattern highlighting the deep orange - porcelain white color palette. Truly a stunning mug, worth all of your whiles. 

Handmade, one-of-a-kind, wood-fired, wheel-thrown and durable. 

One of the most frequently requested and created pieces of ceramic. Mugs over the years have garnered a cult-like fascination with how many patrons collect them as well as how many Ceramists create them. The mug can be simple and direct or elaborate and ornate. A key element that separate mugs from tumblers, cups and other drinking vessels is both straightforward and defining - The combination of the handle, weight and volume is what sets a good or great mug apart from the rest.


Woodfiring Ceramics is both timeless and ancient, alluring and backbreaking. Starting with the wood as the sole fuel source is key to any atmospheric woodfiring. Next is the kiln, Kickwheel is blessed from having been invited to participate in the Anagama styled firings at Rock Rose Studios in Mendocino County. Third is the core group of skilled Artisans who tend to the kiln as it fires, a round the clock, 24 hour a day endeavor for the entire duration of loading and then subsequently firing off the kiln. Finally, The Fire. Fire within the kiln gets its own notoriety here as a living, breathing, thinking and feeling entity mainly because of what it can do and how it does so. Woodfiring is no task to be taken lightly and a successful woodfire actually takes over a decade to fully accomplish and admire.


The wares that go through a woodfire process are immediate antiquities simply for having survived what can be a chaotic and tumultuous time. Due to the woodfire environment wares can warp, become roughened or even get destroyed if any of the multitude of variables are even a little off.


Fired in an Korean/Japanese Anagama style kiln for over a week with wood being the sole source of fuel. This style of firing dictates that the kiln needs to be tended and stoked to the whole time. 4 pairs of stokers patiently babysit the fire, and skillfully feed it with precision and accuracy. A demanding process that requires a thoughtful attention to the amount, type and size of split wood.
