This handmade green terracotta mug has 'Sassenach' written on the front. The mug also features thistles on the other side and a dragonfly.
There is also a thistle on the inside. The mug handle is impressed.

This mug is made in terracotta clay, which is what I generally use, but also happens to be the sort of clay that would have been used for the everyday pottery of the 18th century.

The mug is ideal for tea or coffee, or maybe hot chocolate with a wee dram.
It holds approximately 300mls/10 oz.

All my pieces are glazed in food safe glazes and are dishwasher safe.

Each mug is thrown and decorated by hand and as with any hand built item there will be some variation in size between pieces, which is part of their charm and makes each piece unique.
Measurements: H11cm (approx)
Capacity: 300ml (approx).

Additional policies

Handmade and Unique
All my pieces are handmade and no two are exactly alike. Sometimes there will be a slight 'imperfection' such as a slight asymmetry or speckle in a glaze. This is part of the nature and charm of handmade pottery and is what makes each piece unique.
All my pieces are sturdy and suitable for everyday use. I use lead free foodsafe glaze.

I recycle packaging where possible.
Many of my mugs come in beautiful, printed presentation boxes. These are designed to be kept and reused e.g to store jewellery or sewing items.


I can do personalized and custom orders within reason. For instance I am happy to make you a bird bowl or mug in a different colour and bird combination to those currently listed.
All my pieces are dishwasher safe and have food safe glazes.
I am happy to provide gift wrapping and send directly to the receipient of the gift if you prefer.

Oct 2018 - I have now started using biodegradable loose fill in my parcels. I recycle packaging wherever possible.

Many of my mugs come in beautiful, printed presentation boxes. These are designed to be kept and reused e.g to store jewellery or sewing items.
Yes I do ship to the USA and most other countries too. The only exception is with my Licensed Outlander pieces which I can only ship within UK and Europe. (See below for more detail on Outlander pieces).
Yes I can ship multiple items and for each piece after the initial piece, shipping will be reduced. This applies to UK and International shipping.
Because my license to sell Outlander merchandise only covers UK and Europe, I cannot personally ship outside these countries. However if you are in e.g US and have a friend or relative in the UK who could buy a piece for you, I will offer Free shipping to your contact in the UK.
Yes I make all my own, foodsafe glazes. It is not normally possible for me to make glaze colours outside of my standard range as it takes a lot of experimentation and testing to make a new colour.
I don't include paper invoices in my orders, as many of them are purchased as gifts. Etsy will send you a detailed online receipt.
