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, and then a pulled handle was added.
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 rustic speckled white, teal, caramel or dijon 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.
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 and they stack for efficient cupboard storage.
Coffee tastes better in a handmade mug!
