Is the bluebird of happiness your mortal enemy first thing in the morning, before you've had your coffee? Wake up and start your day off with some happiness both, with this "Good Morning" mug! This bluebird won't sing to you, but he will bring a smile to your sleepy face and will quickly become one of your favorite mugs.
This mug is available in both right-handed and left-handed mugs (right-handed mugs have the bird facing you when the handle is in your right hand; left-handed mugs have the bird facing you when the handle is in your left hand). Please be sure to choose the correct one depending on your dominant hand and/or which way you'd like the bird to face.
These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. 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" (oddly enough this is both a defect, when the piece is functional, and a desired effect, when the piece is decorative, like a vase). 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.
