On Etsy since 2014

"You should get your own Etsy store..."

This little shop was created from my love of art and making. I've always been drawing and creating stuff, even as a little kid. I would always hand make birthday cards and presents for people, and as I got older, I would up my present game.

One year I decided to try my hand at painting a ceramic mug for someone's birthday. They loved it! I had always thought about making my own Etsy shop, but that mug solidified the idea and about a year later, Pigment and Hugh was born.

Since then the shop has expanded from mugs to other things such as plates, bowls, and wine glasses. I love finding new ways to transform these boring, everyday household objects into something that will be cherished by a customer.

If you ever want to customize something, please let me know! I would love to hear your suggestions to make things uniquely yours. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an Etsy conversation.

Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All mugs, plates, bowls, and glasses are hand painted. They are dishwasher and microwave safe. They have been tested in the top rack of the dishwasher and with fingernail scratching. Although the items are dishwasher safe, I recommend hand washing them to keep the colors vibrant for longer.

Sizing details

All square bottom small mugs (i.e. Cat Mug) hold 10 fl oz. All larger mugs (i.e. Fiance Mug) hold 18 fl oz. If you would like to upgrade a 10 oz mug to an 18 fl oz mug, please let me know! (This upgrade is free!)
Bowls have a diameter of 6 inches and hold 18 oz.
Plates are 6.27 inches by 6.27 inches.
Small bowls are 1.35 inches tall and have a 3.35 inch diameter.
Wine glasses hold 16 fl oz and are 8.75 inches tall.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All mugs are wrapped in bubble wrap and newspaper.
At this time, gift wrapping is not available, however, gift items can be shipped with a note from the sender at no additional charge.

Pigment and Hugh is trying to be green! I reuse both bubble wrap and the newspaper for packaging. Please recycle the newspaper and box used used in packaging. Thank you!

Custom and personalized orders

For custom mug orders, please send me Etsy conversation describing what you would like to have on the mug, plate, bowl, or wine glass. I will send you a sketch for your approval. Once the sketch has been approved and payment has been received, I can start working on the item.

If you would like to customize any mug, bowl, plate, or wine glass order, please let me know.

Wholesale availability

For mug, plate, bowl, and wine glass orders of four items and above, wholesale pricing is available. Please let me know before purchasing so I can give you the discounted rate.
