    This planter mug is going to make a great Christmas gift for my boo! I love the color of it and think it’ll look awesome when I get something planted :D

    This planter mug reminds me of a bonfire with its coloring. All of my current plants have unfortunately died :( but now I have the chance to pick the perfect plant to go in there!!

    This is the second order I’ve made here in the last year and I absolutely LOVE this new mug just as much as I love the first one I purchased. The color is unique and vibrant and the pattern at the bottom really sets it apart from any other mug.

    Bought this mug for my wife and she absolutely loved it! The color looks much more vibrant than pictured and the handle fits her hand comfortably.

    This is one of my favorite mugs! The handle comfortably fits my fingers and feels great. I love the pattern along the bottom of the mug and the colors really pop out. Also, I had made a shipping mistake and sent a message to the shop, they were super responsive and still got my order delivered on the expected day!

    The price is super affordable for the amount of work that goes into these mugs. If you haven't, check out their "behind the scenes" content on Instagram to get a deeper appreciation of the process.

    In a world where products are churned out in mass, it's very nice to find something that has so much thought and care put into it.

Hand-built Ceramic Mugs

Each of my ceramic mugs are hand-built without the aid of a pottery wheel.
Much of the patterned ornamentation found on these mugs are impressions made by fossils, rocks, shells, or other interesting natural materials that I have found in the environment. Some textures are also created by tactile means, such as using my fingertips or simple tools, to portray these items as reminiscent of primal artifacts.
Built to handcraft imperfection, each piece has an authentic, made-by-human feel that should remind its user that art is not a custom of machine.

*Listings marked "SF" indicate a specialty mug foot, which is a one of a kind pattern on the bottom of the mug.
