Michael Rutkowsky's pottery always brings "oohs" and "aaahs" because no two pieces are exactly alike, and he keeps playing with glaze combinations and slip texturing, which makes each piece a true one-of-a-kind.
Michael's pottery studio and home are in Burnsville, NC, amidst the beautiful rolling hills of Western North Carolina. His work is predominantly functional, from tall, table lamps to sturdy luminaries to various mugs.
This 12 oz. coffee mug has a slender base, which fits in most car cup-holders. Handle will fit one or two fingers, with a handy knob to rest your thumb. Approximately 5 1/4 inches high, with a 2 3/4 inch [inner] diameter. Fully-glazed interior; outside has glaze around the rim, the base, and trailing down the sides--the belly of the mug, as well as the handle, are unglazed.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Artist statement included.
