MidMod Mugs! Mid-Century Modern Design love is real!
Freshly made, wonderfully functional, with a vintage flair. Your new favorite mug, available only from Fern Street Pottery.
The process: I throw these mugs on my potter's wheel, trim, and add a pulled handle. After bisque firing the mugs I apply a resist in a classic MidMod, stacked-round-square pattern, the resist preserves and reveals the beautiful red clay beneath. Next I glaze the inside of the round-square with three layers of glaze, when it is dry I put a resist on that portion as well, and then glaze the entire mug in either speckled white or teal glaze. Watch for limited edition color ways.
The glaze design is a tactile experience between the smooth glaze and the natural texture of the exposed clay. These mugs are thrown on the wheel by Meredith at her Fern Street Pottery Studio. The mugs are thrown in a red-brown stoneware clay (stoneware, not terra cotta!) which is fired to 2200 degrees, they hold approximately 14oz (14-16oz).
Lead free, microwave safe and dishwasher safe.
My wife unfortunately broke the first mid mod mug that she bought right before Christmas. I ordered a new one and Fern Street got it out to me before Christmas, and with a special treat! Thank you so much!!
These are such beautiful mugs with such a great texture, they are lovely to hold and are perfect size for a hot cup of tea or coffee.
These are some of my favorite mugs!! Balanced weight and perfect form for mixing up powdered beverages!
I randomly stumbled upon Fern Street Pottery on instagram and am so glad I did. I love my mugs and am very picky about what I use, and I LOVE these. The design is beautiful, the mug has a great "feel" (combo of size, shape, weight, handle). I have given these as gifts and keep sneaking in more for myself in different colors.....
