The Anglo-Saxon Runes on this mug spell out the four ancient elemental forces of nature:

Earth | Air | Fire | Water

There are celtic knots on the top and bottom of the handle.

To make this mug, I carved individual letter stamps from clay and press them into a flat slab of clay before forming it into a cylinder and adding a pulled handle and slab bottom. The band of runes and the celtic knots on the handle are stained with iron oxide. The rest of the mug can be glazed in a variety of colors, examples of which can be seen on other mugs in this catalog. The mug pictured is glazed in a glossy Black glaze.
