Sleepy Owl mug (large)
Do you feel a little like this sleepy owl first thing in the morning, until you've had a cup (or two) of coffee? Maybe you do feel the same, or maybe you're an owl collector (or know someone who loves owls). Either way, this mug is just too perfect on too many levels.
This is both a right-handed and left-handed mug, meaning that the the mug is detailed on both sides so you see his face no matter which way it's facing.
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 recommend it for long periods of time -- the rapid change in temperature when you take the mug out of the microwave 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", 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.
