Bike shaped pasta and burlap (or some other amazingly-textured surface) are pressed into the clay before firing. Since these are individually handmade, there will be small variations such as an un-round shape, tiny cracks, or glaze variations that do not impact the function or structure of the piece. All mugs are wonderful to hold and use with comfortable handles, slightly flared rim, smooth base and a balance weighted at the bottom (very hard to tip over!). It will be your go-to mug every morning! Each hand-built stoneware mug is made one at a time, without a potter's wheel. The making process is about 2 hours per mug, and drying must happen very slowly to avoid warping and cracking. Each mug is unique in shape, design, and coloring, and holds approximately 11 oz filled to the rim. Fired to over 2200 degrees F, it meets the glaze manufacturer’s specification for food safety and is lead-free. Stoneware is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe. Stovetop or freezer use is not recommended. Artist's mark on the bottom. A beautiful bike-themed way to drink your morning coffee or other favorite beverage! Color may vary from the photos, but the vibe remains similar piece-to-piece.
Made in the USA.
