Inspired by a love of clay and a love of yarn, this hand-built one-of-a-kind mug is something to treasure. Not for you is a simple, plain mug! You know that a mug, sometimes your best friend in the morning serving up your coffee, or a quiet friend awaiting you with tea as you read in the evening... this is not just a functional piece, but a work of art. Each one of these mugs is made by hand, impressed with a hand-crocheted doily, so even the same color mug will be slightly different every time it is made. This is the kind of mug you can take pride in.
These mugs were glazed with non-toxic, food-safe glazes and can be cleaned with hot soapy water or run through the dishwasher. They are shaped to be a little wider on the bottom than at the top, helping to make your piece more sturdy and give it less chance of being tipped over.
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.
