Beautiful mug shots

  • “I love that the surface of this everyday mug reflects a fancy 18th century teacup — perfect for those of us who love a mug of tea but like the traditional look of a formal teacup!” says artist Molly Hatch. Jo Chattman photo

  • “I've been enjoying the mug's tall cylindrical shape that holds the heat of the tea on these cooler mornings. Its shape also allows me to wrap my hands around the mug  for warmth,” says maker Michael McCarthy. supplied photo

  • “This simple mug is my favorite size for a cup of coffee in the morning — small enough so the coffee stays hot and just big enough to really get you going,” says potter Steve Theberge. Jo Chattman photo

  •  “Artists are usually most excited about their newest work. Lately, I’m loving this soft matte grey glaze in combination with the toasty orange clay body and contrasting blue interior. The colors and textures are all very comforting and familiar,” says ceramicist Tiffany Hilton. Supplied photo

  • ​​​​“More often than not, we drink coffee out of our tumblers instead of mugs. We love that they fit in a car cup holder (yes, we bring them in the car!) and their comfortable feel in the hand,” said Tandem Ceramics  founders Justine Barrett Figura and Grant Figura. Jo Chattman photo
