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 Irish mug holds 6 oz. and is approximately 5 3/4 inches high, with a 1 3/4 inch [inner] diameter. Fully-glazed interior; outside has glaze around the rim, and trailed down the sides--the body of the mug, as well as the handle, are unglazed.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Artist statement included.
