This blue and pink handmade porcelain mug is a work of art which takes two to three hours to make. It is first hand thrown on the potter’s wheel and while it is drying, a handle is pulled and then attached at just the right timing so both the mug body and handle are the correct dryness. This prevents the handle from cracking as it dries. After a few weeks drying, it can go in to its first firing in the kiln (Ceramic oven). It is then hand glazed in pink and blue and re-fired in the kiln a second time.
It then takes about 45 minutes to paint on 22k gold designs wearing special protective gear. After the gold has been painted on, the mug goes into a third firing and finally comes out ready to be sold. It is a usable work of art.
This handmade mug is perfect for coffee lovers. A special mug you will always choose first out of the cabinet to fill with your favorite drink and curl up with by the fire.
It is a solid, well made, sturdy mug that feels comfortable in your hand. The person you give it to will love the quality of this special piece.
A beautiful way to have morning coffee.

Most of our pieces are dishwasher safe. But handmade ceramics is always better hand washed.
Porcelain pieces with no gold may be used in the microwave. If a piece has gold it cannot be used in the microwave due to the metal.
Pieces such as baking dishes or pie plates may be put in a cool oven and heated to temperature then when finished baking, taken out below 250°F. This gradual change in temperature helps prevent shock to handmade ceramics.
Not for use in the freezer.
Pet pieces can be wiped with a damp cloth
