NEW! As of December 29th we have several new red mugs that have black rims and are black inside. The designs vary somewhat from mug to mug, no two are exactly alike.
Rebecca Livingston is an artist who creates beautiful pottery. She lives in Arkansas, and graciously agreed to let us carry a limited selection of her work. She works with white stoneware, and her glazes are all lead-free. You may want to get one to keep and one as a gift (Lorna says don't forget orders over $75 get free shipping).
These mugs are delicate, yet strong (below you'll find care instructions). I love the way these mugs feel in my hand. They are super lightweight, gorgeous to look at, and really just delightful to use. My mother found Rebecca and her mugs many years ago, and our whole family has been enjoying them since.
Each of these mugs is different in shape and size, they are all around 4" to 5" tall & about 4" wide. That being said the openings at the top and the shape make them sometimes different in how much they hold, we've found it to be between 12oz and 16oz for the most part. We cannot guarantee sizes, but if you have a strong preference, we'll do our best with what we have. Keep in mind the one-of-kind beauty with these mugs; no two are the same.

(The video below shows our first batch from November of 2019, and the shapes are the same —giving you a virtual shopping experience, the closest to touching them yourself.)
Here's a note from Rebecca: There is a reason handmade pottery feels so good to use. It is a direct spirit connection to the earth. When you use handmade pottery, you nourish your soul. You experience joy in the small but important ways that make daily living fulfilling.
Mugs are microwave safe, but really should be at least 3/4 full when microwaving. They are dishwasher safe, but make sure they are not too close to other dishes, as they are more delicate and don't like to be knocked and jostled. They are actually oven safe (not that you'd need to put a mug in the oven), but ought to be preheated with the oven —in other words, avoid thermal shock, be careful with extreme temperature changes.
