Each mug shape is cut out by hand and formed into the body of the mug. The seam is left visible where the sides of the mug join, as part of the design. A circular shape is cut and added for the base and a strip of clay is cut, curved and added for the handle.
The process of using slabs of clay to create these mugs results in each mug having an irregular shape (rather than being perfectly circular), which gives each mug it’s own character and unique personality, which adds to its charm.
Each mug is individually crafted so no two are exactly alike and each much takes approximately 3/4 weeks to make from start to finish, including making, drying, bisque firing, glazing and final high firing.
