Drink in Israel with your morning tea or coffee.
This set of handmade mugs is formed from clay hewn in the land of Israel. After slowly drying and bisque firing, they serve as a perfect canvas for a handpainted landscape tableau of olive trees in the Judean Hills in a soft palette of olive greens and purple-black, bark brown, sky blue, and iridescent mauves. I added a sweet path leading up to the tree so you can imagine yourself taking walking along this lovely scene.
After glaze firing, I hand painted them with 22 karat gold accents and mother-of-pearl luster before kiln firing them.
Olives are one of the seven special species of the Land of Israel mentioned in the Bible. These mugs are also available with original paintings of the other species, namely dates, pomegranates, figs, grapes, wheat and barley.
They are generously proportioned, and comfortable to hold.
Each set is an original painting on clay. The one pictured here may be sold, but if you order it, I will paint a very similar tableau on your set! You can even order custom elements. Email me if you are interested in personalizing your mugs!
