A coffee tumbler with a carved woman portrait. This earthy, unique coffee mug is the perfect mug for your morning tea or coffee. This pottery mug is made of speckled yellow clay and glazed with clear matte food-safe glaze.

ShellyClayspot ceramics are made with love and attention to detail.

*Sgraffito: a form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in slip-on ceramics before firing.

Each cup has a different portrait of a beautiful person from a different culture from somewhere in the world. I love these cups! If you want to buy just this one cup, add this item to your cart. But I would love to make you a set of all different portraits!
