I call this mug the Northwest Mug becuase 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, just out side Seattle, the Emerald City. The mug was thrown with a white stoneware clay then trimmed to have a finished foot and thehandle 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!

Emerald City Green: glazed it in two layers of green glazes; a matte on the bottom with a gloss on the top half and a beautiful reaction where they overlap.

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.
