I call this mug the Northwest Mug because it is designed specifically to keep your large coffee warm longer and to fit comfortably in your hands. It is perfect for snuggling with on a grey northwest day. Comfortable, roomy handle, four-fingered handle (for most!).
This mug was thrown on the wheel by Meredith at her Fern Street Pottery Studio in the Pacific Northwest. The mug was thrown with a white stoneware clay then trimmed to have a finished foot 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. This mug holds approximately 14oz (14-16oz). It is lead free, microwave and dishwasher safe. They are made one at a time so no two are exactly alike, -especially where the glazes meet, melt and play- but they are very well matched. Coffee tastes better in a handmade mug!
Blue World: glazed it in a cobalt blue glaze then 4 more layers of different blues and greens on the top half. These glazes melt in beautiful combinations every time.
Northwest Mug style also available as Angle dipped or Carved mugs, which are Speckled White on red clay.
