Year of the Dragon; glazed porcelain mug , hand or dishwasher safe, 3” x 3”


For Wing on Wo, I have created an exclusive mug which integrates symbols associated with power, such as lightning bolts and flames around the dragon’s crown. Energy waves surrounding the dragon’s body draped around the cup will remind the drinker that they are courageous, charismatic and this year will be filled with vitality. Happy New Year!
