The travel mug is intended as a gift for my father in Southeast Asia. Yes, I will be shipping this item to the other side of the world... :) He loves coffee and I am very certain he would appreciate the quality of this mug too! I am so happy to see it in excellent condition. The quality is totally beyond words could ever describe. I sincerely recommend Nela as an artist. Her art is truly unique, functional and unforgettable. I will definitely order for more!!!! I'm an avid fan!!!

Perfect in every way. Highest quality design and execution I could not be more delighted.
Functional fantasies in clay
Nela Ceramics became a business in 2005 in Miami, Florida when I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my dream of being my own boss doing what I've always loved doing, designing and creating ceramic functional wares.
The whole process of centering an uneven lump of clay on the wheel, shaping, trimming, decorating, glazing and firing is currently done by one person... Me
Not easy, yet very satisfying specially every time when I open the kiln (oven) to see the final result of an intense production journey.
Most of my business comes from wholesale orders. My Etsy store helps me sell one of a kind pieces or some extras. I still feel blessed to be able to fill in other people's need from home and that is thanks to the internet and all the amazing resources like Etsy and wholesalecrafts.com available to artists who want to make a living by doing what they love doing!
Owner, Maker, Designer
Been a potter and designer of my own work for over 20 years. Born in Venezuela and partly raised in Holland among artistic family members. Founder of Nela Ceramics Inc in 2005.
I've been living in Florida since 1997 and have been greatly influenced by the sunny and colorful ambience of the South West side of the state.
I began my pottery affair in 1990 and ever since been "stuck in the mud" in a good sense so to speak. Al my work has been tested in the microwave and dishwasher without problems. I use a safe formulated glaze for the surface that gets in contact with food.
Most of my work have been in galleries and shops all over the US.
My store here in Etsy shows a varied sampling of this work which are packed and ready to be shipped to the lucky one that buys it. The pictures will be dropped from this site after the sale but will remain in my wholesale catalogue from www.nelaceramics.com as sample pieces only for approved retailers.
Please feel free to drop me a line or two if you have any question or comment about my work.
