Handcrafted, Wheel Thrown Pottery Mugs 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 stamped in, and stained 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 handmade 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***Rush orders are not available. Custom orders ship in 4-6 weeks. Order Early, pottery is a slow process.
**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 desired 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 with pottery. (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, pack and ship your mug! Whew!!
*Things to consider:
keep it short- fewer words read the best! one or two words per line. I don't recommend going over 4-5 words.
Check your spelling!
Writing will be in *all lowercase* letters, in a sans serif font. the "heart in a speech bubble" stamp is available to add to the text.
If this is a gift I can ship direct (be sure to put the recipient's address in the 'ship to' section). I will not include any pricing- But do let me know what to write on the card, so they will know who it’s from.
