I made this mug inspired by one of my favorite quotations...

"Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."

~Henry David Thoreau~

Despite a small drip of glaze that 'kissed the kiln shelf' his is a delightful travel mug with a butterfly on each side. The glaze dripped over and through parts of both butterflies adding colorful rivers of juicy uniqueness. I think this is a mixture of new clays I was playing with this past winter. Being part porcelain gives it the lighter overall appearance and turns the blue rutile glaze into electric blues and lavenders.

This is the "cup holder" style of travel mug I make, designed to (hopefully) fit in your car's cup holder. Nowadays there are so many makes and models of cars I really can't promise this mug will fit yours... I drive a 2003 Subaru Forrester (pictured) and they fit perfectly. The idea is that the longer foot should nestle into the cup holder, making it safe (er) from tipping should you hit the breaks or curves with perhaps a little too much gusto. Though not as stable as the squat dashboard style, they do stand quite nicely on their own... so if it doesn't fit in your car's cup holder you still have one dandy mug.

It is 6" tall, 3¼" across the widest part of the belly and narrows down to 2.5'" across the top to fit the cork. When I measure my mugs to see how much liquid they hold I fill it to the brim, just as a way of standardizing... I know nobody fills their cup to the tippety top! This one holds 16 ozs of your favorite beverage.
