This is a wonderful mug with a story to tell. There's a big ol' cat about to pounce on a ready-to-scram mouse, while a worried-looking bird looks on. I love this drama between the cat and mouse, and the bright green interior adds to the whimsy..

Of course it's a great design that looks fabulous in many pairs of colors - please use the menu on the right if you'd like to select your own favorites!

I hand build from slabs and then apply slip or underglaze to the piece. I hand draw and sgraffito carve the design into the pottery. It is then fired, glazed and re-fired.

Oxford Dictionary http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/sgraffito
sgraffito: A form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color, typically done ... in slip on ceramics before firing.

Made to order; ready to ship in about 3-6 weeks. If needed sooner, please write me.

3-1/2" diameter (at opening, not including handle) x 4" tall. 5-1/2" across including handle.
Holds 9-10 ounces, with room for cream.

I recommend hand washing, but it is dishwasher safe - microwave and food safe, too.

We do our best to make sure nothing is damaged. In spite of that, if something arrives broken, please let me know immediately. Everything we ship has been insured, so please KEEP THE BOX AND ALL PACKING MATERIALS SO THEY CAN BE INSPECTED BY THE SHIPPING COMPANY!
Ceramic items are fragile, so of course I pack with this in mind. You know that once a package is out of my hands, it won't be handled with loving care until it reaches your door!

I buy bubble wrap, packing peanuts and box that are not available through USPS. I double box whenever needed, to add extra cushioning for multiple items and large pieces.

I'm a little wounded every time something I've made arrives broken and we strive to prevent that. This is why the shipping costs are so high.

Once the piece is packed and weighed, I will refund any shipping overcharge over $2
