 This is one of several styles of hand-made stoneware Mugs by Steve Woodhead Ceramics in my studio in Warwickshire.  I exhibit at many Ceramic shows in the country where my mugs are often regardes as "some of the best"!

Each mug is made on the potters wheel, whilst each mug starts with the same weight of clay they do differ slightly in height and width which adds to the individuality of the piece.  

These mugs are based on my Grandads mug - he was a Farmer in Yorkshire.  I love the rustic earthy feel of this mug, creating using a very coarse crank clay.  The mug is glazed with a beautiful silk finish wood ash glaze, with a wood firing effect giving a lovely toasted finish to the raw clay.  This mug is very tactile to hold and the flash of toasting creates a beautiful warm earthy feel. 

Each mug is totally unique and individual. If you want a set of 2 or more mugs please contact me and I will list an appropriate set for you on eBay, giving you combined postage discount.

  

The rim of the mug is thrown thin to give a comfortable feeling in the mouth.  In addition, the handle incorporates a "thumb grip" which makes the mug very comfortable to hold in the hand.

 

These mugs are dishwasher friendly, and have rattled arround our dishwasher for the past 5 years without incidence.
