Sugar Skull Pottery Mug, Ceramic Coffee Cup, Handmade Stoneware, Deep Brick Red, Teal, Turquoise, Tea Lover Gift, Halloween, Ready to Ship
My handmade sugar skull pottery mugs make unique gifts for day of the dead, Halloween, and any skull-lover. Each drink cup is individually handcrafted, hand glazed, and is a functional piece of ceramic pottery. Each piece is unique. This piece features my hand stamped, 100% unique hand drawn sugar skull design. The sugar skulls are very subtle under the deep blood-red glaze, but are a delightful surprise on the bottom of the mug. The skull designs are slightly raised and have a tactile quality.
Once the clay is bone dry, I fire to bisque in my small home studio kiln. Bisque firing takes about 13 hours. Once the bisque firing is complete, the final glaze is hand painted, allowed to dry, and then fired again in the final stage (another 10+ hours).
The photo shows the actual piece you will receive. Expect slight variations and perfect-imperfections, as each is made by hand.
You can place on the top shelf of the dishwasher. However, in order to prolong the durability, I recommend hand washing with mild detergent (like Dawn). This stoneware mug is microwave safe, but can heat up very quickly. Take care to ensure liquid isn't too hot to cause burns. Do not place in the oven or stove top. Please note, the logo stamp on the base notes "not microwave safe," however this piece is microwave safe.
The glaze is food safe and is non-toxic. Ceramics should be treated with care, as it can break, chip, or crack if dropped.
Give as a gift, or bring some original artwork to your own kitchen with one of my sugar skull mugs!
