Armenian Ceramic Mug with Anemones Flower Motif
Height: 3.9" / 10 cm
Flowers are a central symbol in Armenian art, representing ongoing inventiveness, ability and openness to languages of form, renewed growth and harmony. This mug features a lovely, colorful flower motif.
The mug's rim is surrounded by a solid blue border with a flower motif painted on the inner surface. The flowers are connected with a liana of red, yellow, blue, orange and green buds and leaves. Flowers represent harmony and growth and this is captured with the colors which each represent something special. Blue is known to represent tranquility, spirituality and living beneath the sky while orange stands for creativity and a hard-working nature. Green is a symbol of growth and abundance.
This wonderful mug is wonderful to drink a steaming hot drink from and can serve as a decorative piece.
Bring a touch of art, history, culture and Jerusalem to someone's home with this lovely piece.
Note: Armenian ceramics are delicate and should be treated with care. Each piece is individually hand made with the ancient skill of mixing and shaping clay and water and then placing the object in an oven or kiln at a temperature of 1000°C until it hardens. The piece is then beautifully hand painted with metallic and oxidized paint, maintaining a natural color and then placed again in the oven at the same temperature. The finishing touch is one of fine glazing.
