Beginning with a lump of porcelain clay, Noelle makes this and all handmade pieces from start to finish in the studio at Full Circle. Once the basic shape of a piece is created, Noelle lays out a design for the decoration, adds multiple layers and colors of underglaze, and begins the process of hand carving the text, animals, and floral motifs that have become the hallmark of her work.
After the piece is finished and has dried completely, it is bisque fired, sanded for a completely smooth finish on the back side, rinsed to remove any particles that could mar the glaze and dried overnight. Next, a clear glaze is applied and the piece is fired again to 2600+ degrees Fahrenheit.
This mug has small glass beads randomly added to the clay before firing which create pits, drips and bursts of color in the surface of the piece.
Each piece is permanently signed by Noelle.
All handmade pieces are food safe.
This piece is dishwasher and microwave safe.
