This slip-cast mug has a glossy chocolate-colored glaze, while the bottom is left unglazed and matte.
Slip casting is a process where liquid clay (known as slip) is poured into a plaster mold. As it dries the slip near the interior walls of the mold starts to harden first. The mold is flipped over once the desired thickness is achieved so that the excess slip can drain. This creates a hollow cast of the interior cavity of the mold.
