Looking for something unique, something hand made, something quirky? Take a look at these mugs as they are made, a different mug every month for the year. Sometimes the decoration will be the main focus of the mug, sometimes a new glaze will be what catches your eye. Either way, one of these twelve mugs is bound to, over the year, capture your heart and call to you. Let it become your go-to morning coffee mug, the mug you hope is clean at the end of the day for some evening tea, the mug you reach for first even when every other mug you own is clean. 

Interested in a one-time notification when the next mug is released? Find out before anyone else, by selecting which month you'd like a notice about, then look for where it says "email when available" on the upper left of your screen. Click on that and leave your email for a one-time notification when the mug you want is entered into stock! I won't email you about anything else, and you'll only get the one message.

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 recommend it for long periods of time -- the rapid change in temperature when you take the mug out of the microwave 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", 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.
