Granite Ceramic Mug
You can call it granite, concrete, or matte grey; it doesn't matter to us because we just call them gorgeous. These unglazed cups are unmistakeably made from a natural material and you'd almost think they were carved out of a rock rather than hand-crafted on the potter's wheel
The unglazed ceramic is food safe, but will stain; because these are intended for use with coffee and tea, which are known to stain, you may wish to be dilligent in rinsing and cleaning unglazed mugs as soon as you're done with them. We've left a mug on the counter with dried coffee in the bottom for a week and it came out good as new but doing so repeatedly can result in staining, not unlike a glazed mug, and we actually quite like the look of a well loved hand-crafted piece
Did you know that unglazed ceramic is fired at a higher temperature initially to make it super hard, non-porous, and just as food safe as glazed ceramics? Now you have that bit of trivia to pull out when your guests ask about your gorgeous new hand-crafted unglazed piece sitting on the table it all it's matte, natural glory!
Shannon Penner of Full Quiver Designs was gifted two slabs of clay for Christmas one year and what started out as a hobby has turned into a thriving ceramics business. A naturally artistic and creative person, it is no surprise to anyone who knows her that Shannon took to ceramics as well as she did and now has trouble keeping up with demand.
With her daughter “Peanut” and baby Axel at her side, Shannon is spreading her love of art and artistry to the next generation; check in for other one-off pieces including some of Janna’s (Peanut) pinch pots planted with drought tolerant succulents.
