My marvelous mugs are full of happy. I love making each one- pressing the clay into relief images I have made and adding stamps or textures. Filled with tea to calm or coffee to kick- a special mug pulls you through any day. I truly believe that handmade things contain the energy of the artist that made each piece. It is a precious anchor to reach into your cupboard for your mug and fill it with what you want. There is so little we control these days. May your mug always be half full.
Color and texture make it a marvelous mug
Each mug is a stand alone piece of art in that none are ever the same. It takes time to hand build each one- by imprinting images over wet clay and then rolling it carefully into a cylinder. It dries for a bit until I can attach a bottom, also with images imprinted. The handles are added after that firms up enough and depending upon the design I will add a little fun like a bird or rosebud.
Giving a marvelous mug is a perfect gift to delight, remind that person of you and the love you have for them. I always tuck a little heart down in the inside bottom of the cup as a treat as the last of the liquid is gone. (I always loved those little animals hiding under the milk when I was a kid- but these are easier to clean:)
All our ceramic tabletop is food safe. We do not recommend microwaving any handmade ceramic. It will not destroy it but you may get crazing from the quick heating and cooling that occurs. Honestly, hand wash anything you care about, and save water and energy. (sorry I am all about the environment)
Choose the design of mugs you want- 2 for the price- mixing is fine. Make a note of which mugs in your order.
Bird and Vine, Rosebud, Tsunami, or Paisley Days
