Samantha Bartlett Salt Glaze Pussywillow Mug with Stone Interior
4″ tall with 3″ rim diameter.
Gentle spring pussywillow branches reach up from the base. Due to the salt glaze process, no two are ever identical. Some have a sun-dappled appearance that imbues a painterly quality. Each mug has Samantha's identifying stamp.
