The Richard White Fine Porcelain Mug in Sapphire is a one of a kind, hand made creation. It is thrown on a wheel, no mold is ever used. It is a live performance frozen in time by the fires of its creation. It is shaped by Richard White's hands and heart that have given form to clay for over thirty five years.
The dramatic effect of each glaze comes from his experience mixed with the particular character of the 2300 degree fire that gave it life. Each mug is fused into a living stone so hard it can endure, untouched by time, for thousands of years.
