Handmade Clay Mug with Artisanal Face Design

Savor the enhanced flavors of your broth and hot beverages with our Handmade Clay Mug, featuring a unique face design that brings a touch of tradition and craftsmanship to every sip.

Crafted from the rich, red earth of Mexico, this barrio rojo (red earth) clay mug is a testament to the beauty and functionality of indigenous craftsmanship. Each mug is shaped and fired without the use of dyes or glazes, resulting in a smooth, matte finish that showcases the clay's natural, vibrant color. The handmade nature of these mugs means that each piece varies in size and may bear unique markings from the firing process—celebrated signs of their artisanal origin, not imperfections. Designed for both cooking and serving, this earthenware mug is an unglazed, polished slip that absorbs liquid, enhancing the taste of your favorite hot drinks.

Please note: Each of the handcrafted clay mugs is a unique masterpiece, bearing the individual marks of the artisan's touch. As such, the dimensions of approximately 5" x 4" x 2.5" serve as a guide, with each piece varying slightly in size and shape. This variance is a cherished aspect of our mugs' character, ensuring that the mug you receive is uniquely yours

Indigenous Craftsmanship: Made by indigenous communities in Mexico, these mugs carry forward generations of traditional clay usage, ensuring safety and sustainability.

Handmade Variations: Embrace the unique characteristics of each mug, from size variations to the distinctive markings created during firing.

Sustainability and Safety: Our ceramic items have undergone FDA examination and/or testing for safe use, honoring both the artisans' heritage and modern health standards.

Curing Process: To seal the surface and enhance durability, we recommend curing the mug by baking it for half an hour at 400 degrees Fahrenheit with water.

Maintenance: Given its unglazed nature, the mug should be dried thoroughly after use to prevent absorption and staining from oils and dark colors.

Considerations: Please understand that working with indigenous communities may result in delays and inconsistencies, reflecting the realities of traditional craftsmanship and transport.

This Handmade Clay Mug is more than just a vessel for your beverages; it's a piece of heritage, meticulously crafted to bring warmth, authenticity, and a story to your daily rituals.
