These wheel thrown espresso mugs were fired at high temperature in a wood kiln with natural ash glazing. Color variations happened naturally on the surface of the pot as the clay and ash reacted to the atmosphere of the wood kiln during firing. These mugs hold approximately 4oz of your favorite espresso and are finished with a sweet, delicate handle. While these two mugs were fired at the same time, their location in the kiln resulted in different surface colors and textures, one darker and one lighter. Your order will include one (1) mug – please indicate in the comments of your order if you have a color preference and we will do our best to accommodate.

Hold: 4 oz of liquid
Food safe: yes | Dishwasher safe: yes | Microwave Safe: yes

About wood fired pottery: Many factors including the mug’s location in the kiln, surrounding pottery, and firing temperatures make these beautiful variations both unpredictable and pleasantly surprising.

About the Artist

Jean Hardy
Belfast, Maine

“A potter from the start, I grew up on the edge of the Raritan Formation, a geological formation in NJ associated with lots of naturally occurring earthenware clay. Digging clay and making objects from it was one of many childhood activities that took place outdoors. Studying pottery with many teachers and learning much on my own as well, I maintain a practice of making pottery that gets me through life.”
