If you are rocking a great mustache, you know how hard it is to keep it dry when you're drinking. And if you are a fan of the vaguely creepy, this mug is for you! This 3-dimensional face sticks out, with his slight smile and his fabulously bushy mustache, and just dares you to drink from him. A mustache guard inside the lip will help to keep coffee or tea where it belongs.
These are made as both right-handed and left-handed mugs, with the assumption that the drinker would prefer to have the face facing away from them as they are drinking. Right handed mugs have the face facing away from you while the mug is in your right hand; left-handed mugs have the face facing away from you while the mug is in your left hand.
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.
