Duck Family Mug

CA$ 40.00 CAD

Do you like to start your day with coffee or tea in a special mug that brings pleasant thoughts to mind? Given a choice, that is what I would do. A good start to the day sets the tone for the rest of the day. Why is a duck mug special? It reminds me of putting family first. Ducks are very protective of their young chicks. The baby ducks follow the mother duck as she protects them, guides them, and teaches them how to survive. This, essentially is what we do as human beings. Family is what we cherish and value the most. And the truth is that when one is sick or dying, no one other than family is there to support.


Porcelain clay, underglazes, and glazes
The Story Behind

Salt Marsh Studio Art Mugs are all hand crafted and hand-painted with unique designs. When you purchase an art mug, you are getting a work of art, not an ordinary run of the mill white mug. In addition, each one has something beautiful and inspiring. I choose designs or motifs that inspire or evoke positive sentiments.

Can you imagine the number of hours or the amount of work that goes in creating a single mug?

Below all the steps involved in creating a single mug are listed.

  1. Roll out the clay
  2. Wait till the clay is leather hard to mold the shape
  3. Make the mug. put the handle.
  4. Fine tune all shape, the rough edges, and ensure all the joints are secure.
  5. Carve and paint the motifs
  6. Let it dry for 3-4 days
  7. Sand the rough edges.
  8. Bisque fire the mug
  9. Wash the mug to get rid of the fine dust.
  10. Put different colours of glazes - 3 coats of each glaze.
  11. Glaze firing

Before and after bisque firing the kiln plaques have to be prepared by sanding and applying a fresh coat of kiln wash.

Now that you know the number of steps involved, you can guess each one takes several hours to make.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
