This mug takes full advantage of the gorgeous dark speckled clay that pops against this slightly iridescent/opalescent white glaze. Each mug is hand built from a slab of clay. Holds approx 14 oz.
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each piece of pottery is fired at least twice in the kiln. This part of the process vitrifies the clay so that it is no longer porous. That means nothing can be absorbed into the ceramic. Hand washing will always extend the life of any piece however, all of my functional work (mugs/tumblers, etc) is dishwasher & microwave safe.
* Exception: If your piece has gold on it, do NOT microwave or put in the dishwasher
Two questions I get a lot:
Red wine and coffee: will these drinks will stain your pots? I can say wholeheartedly that I have personally tested this very thoroughly, staining is not an issue.
Hot drinks in tumblers: tumblers can be used for both hot and cold drinks. It comes down to personal preference. If you prefer a handle for your hot drinks, a mug is the way to go.
