Description From Ceremonia
these artisanal high fire clay stoneware mugs are hand thrown by our Michoacan artisan partner Maribel's family. she is well-known in her town for producing top quality ceramics and was eager to meet with me to show me her workshop and process.
to make these mugs, first the clay mix is prepared then placed in molds. once they're made, they're left to lose water then once again re-molded and placed in the shade where they dry for one week, before they're left out in the sun for a few days. the mugs are then placed in a 1000° C (1832° F) oven for 5 hours. the next step is to paint them with a base coat mix, then paint and decorate them with their final finish. finally, they're ready for one last trip to the oven where they're left at a temperature of 1200° C (2192° F) for 10 hours. the process is long, intense, and carefully calculated, which is what makes these pieces so special and high quality.
enjoy your daily ritual with these one-of-a-kind mugs--they're sure to make that time of the day even more special. best of all, these are dish-washer safe, and can last for generations if properly cared for... they're the perfect piece to keep as a treasure & family heirloom.
