Swirled Faceted Mugs
Swirled Faceted Mugs
Capacity: 10 fluid ounces
About – The colorful swirls in these mugs are not glaze – I mixed pigments into the clay itself. The colors twist together on the wheel while I’m throwing them. After they have dried a bit and are firm enough to handle, I cut the fluted columns, which reveal complex patterns under the surface. Every mug is different, and it’s always a surprise to see the end result. Mugs with the same combination of colors will complement each other and make a great set, but each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.
Details – I used a clean white liner glaze on the inside on these mugs. All mugs are food-safe, microwave-safe, and dishwasher-safe. Because I make these cups by hand, they will vary slightly in dimensions. They are approximately 3.75” tall and 3.25” wide, and hold 12 ounces. If you want to pick a specific mug, email me and I will show you what I have in inventory.

wow this mug us absolutely stunning! I purchased it to replace a mug that I loved which broke, and honestly I love this mug even more! plus it was very reasonably priced! would buy a full set if I could!
We wanted something to commemorate this summer's coinciding events of the 17 year cicadas and 17 years of marriage. We loved our friend's handmade Gruner Pottery cicada mugs, and requested a special order from Paul. He was quick to reply and happy to help. The time between ordering and receiving was 2 weeks... amazing really, for all of the work that goes into making such detailed cups from scratch. We love our happy cicada cups and they're prominently displayed in the kitchen when they're not in use for coffee and tea, or even a summer gin and tonic. Cheers Paul for your creativity!
This mug is even more beautiful in person. To call it a “mug” almost feels weird. It’s art. I LOVE the bark texture. He was so great to talk to, and open to adding something I wanted on the bottom. Buy with confidence and know you’re investing in something that will be beautiful.
I love it!!
