One of a kind flower mug
Approximately 3.5" x 3.5"
The flowers on these pieces are ceramic decals. Also known as transfer or indirect printing, decals are primarily applied in an industrial or commercial setting. They are used to adorn and mark ceramic and glassware in a manner that is more uniform and time efficient than hand painting. Ceramic decals have been around since the mid-18th century, and many china floral patterns, mugs with images and text, and souvenir plates commonly seen are decorated with ceramic decals. The inks they are printed with are called enamels and are made of colored mineral pigments. They are applied to the glazed surface and then fired in a kiln, at approximately 1400°F, until they are fused to the piece. Each decal piece by Hollow Work is one of a kind.
Hand washing is best.
Microwaving is fine unless there are gold decals present, then it might spark a little.
