Yellow ware large mug with mochawear in the traditional style, handmade by Ken Henderson of Henderson's Redware in Bangor, Maine. Mochawear is a technique that originated in England in the 18th century and was popular in the 19th century. It consists of dribbling an acidic solution with coloring oxides (manganese) onto a wet slip. The solution spreads in the slip with a tree fern like pattern- all mugs are individual patterns. These mugs are the perfect size for your best cup of coffee or Shaker Tea
. Measures approximately 4" in diameter and 4" tall
Ken creates museum quality reproductions of earthenware pottery from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries in the Anglo-American tradition.
