Like the description states, the mug is very ergonomic and fits perfectly in my hand while sipping. I find the texture and mouth feel at the brim to be reminiscent of a Japanese tea cup and it feels good and relaxing. A medicinal mug for a medicinal beverage just what the doc ordered!

I love this beautiful mug! The texture and paint style tickle my fancy. I brewed a ceremonial first cup of green tea, and gave it to my good friend. Sharing is caring : )

Adore this mug. The handle is a little smaller than I had expected. But it more than compensates for that in everything else. The perfect size and shape for the brews I have in mind. Also, it doesn’t seem to get too hot to hold on the outside. Totally, yes absolutely, thrilled with the swirls. Not to mention, the delicate off-color on the inside (instead of the usual pristine white that I am not too fond of). On the whole, a charming piece.

I'm a multidiciplinary artist that makes one-of-a-kind ceramic tableware out of Brooklyn, New York.
I grew up in Boston and studied photography officially, although I was always interested in working in clay. I took a few classes on the side whenever I could. After graduating, I worked in the photography industry as a fine art printer, retoucher, a freelance photographer. Shortly after I moved to New York, the ceramics world pulled me back in, and I have been selling my work ever since. I love designing and using functional artwork, I find it incredibly satisfying.
Water is a huge influence in my work; I think you can see that peeking out in the colors I use in my designs. I started swimming when I was very young. I have always lived near the water, in Boston and now Brooklyn. In the summer, I spend as much time as possible on a lake in Maine.
Michelle Smith McLaughlin is the designer and artist behind Calyer Ceramics. Her work is inspired by natural, organic forms, melty ice cream colors, and cantaloupes. She makes everything herself, by hand or on the wheel.

I recommend hand washing and and I would avoid prolonged soaking of unglazed pieces. I use food safe, lead free glazes unless otherwise noted in the description. Dirt and stains on unglazed surfaces can be removed with a scrubby pad or a wire brush and a bit of baking soda.
