This handcrafted Smug Cup is designed with its own personality that is sure to make you smile! This quirky creature is unique and completely hand-made-- thrown on the potter’s wheel, hand carved, glazed, and china painted. Smug Cups are food safe and meant to be used, so drink up. They are made of porcelain and are dishwasher and microwave safe, although heating liquids in a separate container will extend the life and finish of the mug.
