The Golden Ginkgo Noir Mug is hand-built from black stoneware clay. My ginkgo leaf patterns are made either from real leaves that I collect in the surrounding or I use a ginkgo wooden stamp to make them. The cup is glazed with a matt black glaze to reach a special black effect.
Each piece in the Golden Ginkgo Noir series is fired to a high temperature (ca. 1220c), which makes them very strong and solid. However due to the liquid gold touch, I do not recommend to wash them in the dishwasher.
All of my ceramic pieces are hand-built and individually finished and glazed, therefore natural variations in colors, textures and shapes from piece to piece are to be expected.
The Golden Ginkgo Noir series is completely food safe and lead free.
