Drippy Slippy Mugs and Tumblers

Drippy Slippy Mugs and Tumblers

from 22.50

The unique design of these mugs comes from the clay itself, rather than a glaze. I use liquid clay (called slip, hence the name), marbled with several colourants on the outside of the piece. This is applied thickly and, with a little encouragement, will flow down to created the colourful drips. The handle is pressed into the slip at this point. Once dry, the slip permanently fuses with the rest of the clay to become solid. I glaze the slip with a clear glossy glaze to bring the colours out, and the inside is glazed like the inside of a Waterfall piece.

The default design for the Tumblers, and Travel Mugs are taller, straight-sided pieces, whereas the default Mugs are a flatter, wider, and rounded. If you’d prefer a taller thinner mug, let me know.

The colours of the slip and lining glaze can be changed, talk to me about any alternatives you’d be interested in first.

Standard pieces are usually glazed or thrown to order, depending on what stock I have on the shelves. If I have one ready to send I can generally dispatch next day, but if I’m throwing a piece specifically it will take several weeks. If you need an item to be dispatched sooner than that, please get in touch with your requirements and I'll let you know what I can do.

Don't forget that you can change the handle style on mugs, and add personalisation to any item.

Please note that all products are individually handmade and each item is unique.
