About the process of the Nancy Sinatra Eyes Mug:
I throw the mug on the wheel using a white clay, and then attach the handles. After that, I use a stencil to apply the eyes and logo, using underglazes. Then the mug is slowly air dried, and then put into the kiln for the first (bisque) firing. Then I apply a clear glaze and fire the mug again to its final temperature (~2167 degrees F). I've attached a video of the process of doing the eye transfer.
