Hurricane Irma cleanup is going well (we're keeping an eye on Maria) and many delayed products will be making their way online this week... as well as a few one-shots made for the hurricane-canceled Florida Fiber-In. Thank you for your continued patience!
You love knitting, and you love coffee (or maybe you love tea... or maybe you love both! Let's not limit ourselves!). What better way to show off your favorite craft with something to hold your favorite beverage? Use this mug as a good excuse to get a little knitting time in first thing in the morning (and then relax with it again at the end of the day).
These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. And while I have been known to put my own ceramics in the microwave, I don't officially recommend it -- the rapid change in temperature can cause the glaze to cool more quickly than the ceramic, which retains heat, and so shrinks at a slower rate. This can occasionally call what is called "crazing" which when the glaze cools faster than the ceramic piece, making small cracks in the glaze. This can happen immediately or even years later, and personally I've seen it happen on many of the commercial mugs I own that I put in the microwave often.
HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
