This ceramic sugar skull mug is finished in a free hand Mexican style folk art design to commemorate the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. This ceramic skull mug resembles a traditional sugar skull used in celebrations of life. All of the folk art design on this ceramic skull mug is hand painted and my original design.

 This day of the dead skull is made of ceramic slip that is hand cast using a plaster casting mold for uniformity. Each piece is kiln fired to cone 04 bisque then each piece is hand painted with non-toxic underglaze and sealed with food safe clear glaze and kiln fired a second time to mature the glaze. This skull cup is made in its entirety in my shop located in central Texas.

The day of the dead skull mug is dishwasher safe and food safe.
