Item details

White portrait carved on a gray folded pottery mug in sgraffito technique.
This mug is a great housewarming gift for your loved one.

This earthy, hand-folded, taupe clay mug is the perfect cup for your morning tea or coffee. It is wonderful for cold drinks as well.

What’s special about these handle-less mugs is the portrait images that I have hand-carved using the sgraffito* technique on the outside. Each cup has a different portrait of a beautiful person from a different culture from somewhere in the world.

I love these cups! If you want to buy just this one cup, add this item to your cart. though I would love to make you a set with all different portraits!
