This set includes two mugs, a tiny cat, and a pop up card - the value of these individually add up to a total of $139 regularly.

The mermaid cat mug is wheel thrown with a mid fire stoneware clay body. It’s trimmed and hand painted with underglaze before it’s bisqued. After bisque, wax resist is applied to the mercat and it’s glazed in a glossy white glaze and goes through a second firing. Then, gold and silver lustre details are added before it goes through a fourth and final firing. The finished piece is approximately 12 cm tall by 8.5 cm wide.

This space cat mug is wheel thrown with a mid fire stoneware clay body. It’s trimmed and hand painted with underglaze before it’s bisqued. After bisque, wax resist is applied to everywhere except the space cat, ship, and handle and it’s glazed in a glossy white glaze and goes through a second firing. Then, gold and silver lustre details are added before it goes through a fourth and final firing. The finished piece is approximately 12 cm tall by 8.5 cm wide.

As they are decorated with gold and silver lustre, neither piece is microwave safe, and they are hand wash only. 

The pop-up shadowbox scene shows the first moment of meeting between Space Boy and Prince, as the calico cats ship has crash landed on the water planet that Prince calls home. Their meeting is underscored by soft instrumental guitar, and you can hear the sound of waves and the distant call of a whale. The ship sinks in the background, broken - to be later found and repurposed into a cute home for Space Boy! The card is 5.5” x 4” when flat and 3.65” x 4” x 1.6” when open. It’s paired with a coordinating envelope and there’s room on the back of the card to write your own short message. Made in collaboration with Halifax based artist Bardbardbard, and his work can be seen on Esty.

The final piece in this set is a tiny cat. This cutie is hand formed from a single ball of clay, and the face is handpainted with underglaze.
