This mug was thrown on the wheel by Meredith at her Fern Street Pottery Studio. The mug was thrown in a red-brown stoneware clay (stoneware, not terra cotta!) then trimmed to have a finished foot, hand carved, and the handle was added. The shape, which curves in at the top is specifically designed to keep your beverages warmer longer.
The handle is hand pulled, creating a shape that fits comfortably in your hand, with a perfect groove for your thumb. After drying and firing I glaze them in a glossy speckle white or a teal glaze which "breaks" (shows through) at the edges to reveal the beautiful red clay beneath. The carved designs are a tactile experience while holding your mug. This mug holds approximately 14oz (14-16oz).
These mugs look great in a set of similar colors or a variety of colors. They are made one at a time so no two patterns are exactly alike, but they are very well matched.
Coffee tastes better in a handmade mug!
