This mug was thrown on the wheel by Meredith at her Fern Street Pottery Studio. The mug was thrown in a rich red-brown stoneware clay (stoneware, not terra cotta!) hand carved, trimmed, and a pulled handle was added.
The handle is formed and "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 speckled white 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 14-16oz.
This Northwest mug shape is designed and thrown to keep your large coffee warmer longer.
These mugs look great in a set. They are made one at a time so no two are exactly alike, but they are very well matched.
Coffee tastes better in a handmade mug!
