4.25" high x 3" wide

Mediterranean sediment from a deep hyper-saline anoxic basin that is sulpherous and cell biologist Nina Allen guessed, before seeing it fired, that it would be yellow. It is. On this mug, it's the exterior golden color. Interior white and exterior celadon at bottom are glazes assembled from refined materials. Seaglass in the thumbwell.
