Beautifully simple and effortless elegant, this mug is like a love letter to mugs. Fresh and timeless and at home on any table or bedside, these do the beautiful daily work: perched over the crossword, steeping by the fire, or even forgotten (again) on the desk. The just-matte white ceramic finish has a very subtle sheen, giving it a dreamy, almost velvety aspect and a gentle feeling in the hand but does make it more susceptible to pigment transfer. We like to think of subtle afterimages (like, say, on the inside of the cup) as remembrances of coffees past. With a madeleine, of course.
About The Line: Lovingly made by hand in Arizona by our favorite brilliant artist, subtle ceramicist, and mad-tinkerer Jeff Patterson (who is also the full-grown, fully-seaworthy shipwright behind our favorite pint-sized, fully-seaworthy Constellation Pond Yachts) this line of pared down classic silhouettes is a joy to behold and use.
