Surprised Face Mug

Measurements: 4" Tall by 5" wide including handle, 3.25" opening. Handmade by Chet Salustri. A functional mug with a whimsical flair. Chet is inspired by elements of nature, animals, fish and the human figure. Humor is an important quality in Chet's artwork and is expressed in each piece. His pottery is made from a combination of thrown pottery and hand built forms. The glazing process involves applying underglaze color with a spray gun along with some brush work. After the work is fired in a kiln, he covers the piece with glaze and fires again to give a glassy finish. The final step is the application of china glaze for some of the small details.
