Handmade Pottery mug with custom order text. The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, with a lead-free glaze. Holds approximately 12-14oz / (about 1.5 cups). The cup is a lovely white clay with a turquoise-green glaze on the inside, and the customized text will be in a chocolate brown. Thrown on the Potter's Wheel by Meredith at Fern Street Pottery. Each one is handmade so no two are exactly alike but they will be well matched (That's the beauty of hand made pottery!). Mugs are microwave safe and dishwasher safe, and of course food safe/leadfree. This sale is for one custom ordered mug. Order a set for a family reunion, ladies weekend, or a wedding gift.
****IMPORTANT****Why does it take so long?****
This mug will not exist until you order it... at which point I will throw it on the potter's wheel. The next day, after it dries a bit, I will trim the bottom, form and add the handle, and stamp in your text. The mug will then dry for at least a week, possibly two (pottery dries slowly in the northwest!) before I can fire it and fill the kiln. (one day to fire, plus one day to cool). then I glaze- not just your mug but an entire kiln load of pottery- this takes a few days! Next I load the kiln and glazefire to about 2200 degrees (one day to fire, plus about 36 hours for the kiln to cool). When the kiln has cooled, I sand the bottom and ship your mug! Whew!
