4 ¼" Dia x 3 ?" H (10 Ounces) (Surface Area of all paintable sides: 160 sq. in.): Brighten up any morning with the Blooming Sunflower Mug! This delicate and fanciful bisque piece has a unique design! The lip of the mug crests like the edge of a flower petal, the handle has a unique fiber texture, and the whole piece trumpets out from a narrow base to a wide mouth! This playful piece of pottery makes a marvelous gift for the green-thumbed gal or guy in your life! Native to North America, the sunflower is a unique and strange plant. They display a behavior called heliotropism. That means the flower buds will face east in the morning and follow the sun as the earth moves during the day to catch the most rays! Many sunflower varieties can grow as tall as 16 feet, but the world record height for a sunflower is 30 feet and 1 inch! These amazing plants aren’t just beautiful. They also are great for a modern healthy cooking fat: Sunflower Seed Oil! Paint the Blooming Sunflower Mug with all of the vibrance and color as a field of sunflowers on a sunny day! Use bright yellows and healthy greens to recreate this lovely plant! The Blooming Sunflower Mug makes a fun painting project for children and adults, and with its unique shape and cheerful design, it makes a wonderful gift for friends and family!
