Cable Stitch Mug
Cable Stitch Mug
Even if you're not brave enough for cables (trust me, they're easier than they look) or not brave enough for steeking (yikes!!!), you can pretend you are with this steeked cabled mug. Whether you want to start your day off with something yarnish with your coffee, or end your day with your crafting and your tea, this mug is ready for whatever you put in it any time of day.
These mugs are glazed with non-toxic glazes, and can be washed with hot soapy water or even run through the dishwasher in order to be cleaned. Each one is made by hand, slab-rolled, impressed, and hand-cut; while the glaze colors remain the same from firing to firing, the placement of the design may change from mug to mug and your mug may be slightly different than photographed. And while I have been known to put my own ceramics in the microwave, I don't officially recommend it -- the rapid change in temperature can cause the glaze to cool more quickly than the ceramic, which retains heat, and so shrinks at a slower rate. This can occasionally call what is called "crazing". Crazing is when the glaze cools faster than the ceramic piece, making small cracks in the glaze. This can happen immediately or even years later, and personally I've seen it happen on many of the commercial mugs I own that I put in the microwave often.

HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
