Enjoy your coffee with a reminder of your favorite pet. We offer these straight-shaped mugs with decal images of a kitten, or a number of dog breeds. Choose your breed from the drop-down list or type into the Special Instructions Box another breed you have in mind – it is probably available, and we will let you know if it is not. Also choose either shadow blue or celadon green for the top and inside of your mugs. Oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe, with no lead glazes. The base price is for a set of 2, and there are discounts for larger sets of 4, 6, 8 and 12. Because each piece of pottery is made by hand, all will have very slight variations and this is not to be considered a defect.
About the Artisan: Carol Schmoock of Freeville, New York, fell in love with the process and rhythm of throwing pottery many years ago. She works in stoneware that is wheel thrown and altered using various techniques such as fluting, carving, stamping and altering the clay. After selling her work for several years, she joined Handwork, Ithaca’s Cooperative Craft Store, and became its manager. She is excited to now be working in a beautiful new studio and trying new shapes, techniques and glazes. Carol has created a presence in the world of handcrafted pottery and her distinctive work has been appreciated for both its function and beauty.
