This cup is awesome, and it shipped right on time. I bought it as a gift for my girlfriend, and she uses it every day as either a mug for tea or a bowl to eat hot cereal or soup from. This is HEAVY, so you have to use two hands to hold it. But the upside is that the ceramic is so thick that you can hold the outside without burning your hands, even when there's boiling hot tea inside.

About

Long story short....

Andy & I (Nancy) operate a 2-person small batch production pottery studio in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor in Chicago. Our ware is strongly influenced by old-school dinerware (you know, from a diner!) and pop culture, good and bad. We make everything in-house (from scratch) and that helps us create a unique and durable functional product.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

The ware we make is very durable! It's food, dishwasher & microwave safe. It's even safe if placed in an oven for warming, from cold to 350.
Our prints are indelible, meaning they will not scratch or rub or fade off.
We WANT you to use our ware every day, so we make them durable and great looking for every day.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our packaging is chosen with the need to get the ware to the buyer intact.
With that in mind, we do use biodegradable packing peanuts, and when possible, we use rubber bands to secure the bubblewrap so it can be reused.
Our boxes are new.
Our "Thank You" cards are recyclable.
That covers it, but if you have any questions, do ask!

Wholesale availability

You can send us a convo here about wholesale with your store info!
We have a linesheet here on Etsy we can send you to, or a PDF we can email you if you give us your details.
