Handmade Ceramic Mug Moorland Series
Handmade by our team in our Dartmoor studio. Each piece is hand-thrown, coated with white tin glaze on the inside and dipped in our own unique glaze on the outside. The pieces are then fired to create these subtle and contemporary mugs.
This firing is an exciting process for us as it brings the pieces to life, transforming the glaze and clay into rich, yet sophisticated tones. The earthy greens and browns resemble the natural landscape, gorse and forest of Dartmoor, where these pieces are made, which makes their unique design particularly special to us. The natural clay, visible between the two glazes, bakes to a warm, cream colour, providing a gentle contrast in texture. We can only think of the moorland’s variety of terrain and those peaceful long walks across it when looking at these elegant mugs.
What makes these mugs particularly special is that each one is totally unique, so not only do they avoid that manufactured uniformity of mass-produced drinkware, they’re also great if you’re drinking with a group of people as you’ll always know which one is yours. And, what better way to enjoy your morning tea or coffee than seeing and sipping from these handcrafted mugs that remind you of our country's beautiful landscape?
The pieces have been carefully designed to ensure the most pleasant drinking experience. Each handle has been hand-rolled and attached individually. Unlike most mugs, the handles are thin and rounded, which make them light and comfortable when held. Additionally, the mugs are easy to stack when stored due to the hand-carved undercut (as shown in the video below).
The strong stoneware clay and internal tin glaze means it can retain the temperature of your drink longer than your average mug. Additionally, it is dishwasher & microwave safe, although handwashing is ideally recommended for handmade items.
As each piece is handmade, yours may differ slightly from the ones shown in the images.
