If wet-shaving is what you are after, for yourself or as a gift, this shave set is up to the job! As pictured in the last image, this set provides EVERYTHING except for the razor that you or that special man in your life needs to get on with wet shaving: A one-of-a-kind handmade mug, a matching handmade frog-stamped ceramic handled black badger hair brush and a fantastic handmade soap.

A customer of mine (a new 'wet shaving' fan) asked if I could design a shaving mug for him featuring The Coqui (tree frog), which is perhaps the most popular Taino petroglyph (rock carving) located in Puerto Rico. The result of our collaboration was the prototype for this lovely shaving mug .

This listing includes the following:

1 Shaving Mug--Yours is the mug pictured in the first 3 photos
Dimensions: 3.25" high, 4.25" wide, volume 14 fl.oz

1 Ceramic Handled Shave Brush with a Black Badger Hair Brush Head
Dimensions: Brush Head Knot Size 21mm, Brush+Handle Height 4.25"

1 (3.5 oz) Boxed All Natural Shaving Soap by Etsy's AKVA Organics

CURIOUS HOW I MADE THIS?
I threw this shaving mug on the wheel from white stoneware and added groves on the inside to help the brush infuse air into the lather. I decorated the mug with a frog medallion (using a stamp I carved). I then added a handle which is also used to store the matching shaving brush.

The mug is glazed in a semi-matte blue glaze I developed myself. The foot-ring is unglazed. The bottom of the mug is stamped with my studio logo (Rincon Pottery) and my maker's mark ('M' for Miri).

The handmade shave brush features a wheel-thrown ceramic handle (stamped with a tree frog) and a black badger hair brush head. The handle was designed to store the brush when not in use.

I mix all my glazes from scratch, so I know exactly what is in them. The glazes I use are food safe and do not include lead or other toxic materials. If you so desired, this shaving mug can be safely put in the microwave and dishwasher.
