Handmade coffee mug, Sweater Mug. This Sweater mug is made out of Stoneware Speckled clay and glazed with a rich Brown glaze duo. I threw the base on the wheel from a ball of clay, and added the sweater textured slab built sides to it. Then I bellied it out giving it a cute belly. After putting it together on the wheel. I let it dry a bit then trim the foot, and adding a hand pulled handle. I made a couple buttons for the side, and a button on top and bottom of the handle for added cuteness.

Glaze and Stoneware Clay are lead free, and food safe.
3 X 5 X 3.5

Though I state it is dishwasher safe I prefer to wash my mugs by hand to make sure they aren't bumped around and damaged. After all dish washers aren't as gentle as I am when washing them, and they are made out of breakable material.

I offer free shipping for all my items. How do I ship my items you may be asking? Well all of the items I make are very fragile, or should I say they break very easily when bumped or handled roughly. I use the USPS postal service, and we all know that no delivery service is gentle. They just try to get the package where it's going, and I'm thankful for their service. For this reason I make a great effort to ensure your item will reach you in great shape. I wrap each item in bubble wrap, and stabilize it in a box. If I feel it needs to be double boxed I put the first box in another box with more packing supplies on all sides.

All my pottery items are handmade from a piece of raw clay and either thrown on the wheel, slab built, or sculpted by me. My pottery is fired in an programmable electric kiln a minimum of 2 times. I bisque firing to a cone 04, or 1945 degrees. I then wait a day for the kiln to cool down to 120 degrees or cooler, then brush glaze on the piece to create a one of a kind work of art. I love my works of art to be functional as well. After the item is glazed and has dried I'll fire it again reaching the temperature the clay it's made out of it matures which depending on the clay can be 2167 to 2262 degrees. This makes the item microwaveable and safe to use. All these factors are very important to me and my pottery business. I don't skimp, in fact my motto is "Be the task great or small, do it well or not at all."
