Article number: JOHN-10031
Availability: In stock (5)
This classically elegant, perfectly simple, exquisite handmade porcelain mug reminds us of a perfectly elevated version of those lovely, narrow colonial-era stoneware beakers. While we put tea and coffee (and the occasional bisque) in ours, their shape and provenance makes them pretty perfect for mulled wine, mead, or the occasional small beer. The delicately tapered handle fits perfectly into the curve of a hand and it is substantially weighty without being heavy.

Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these pieces are fully finished with an extremely hard, high-gloss clear glaze. The almost luminous soft white color? That's the all-natural hue of the porcelain itself. It woke up like this. And then it made you coffee.

About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love—it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
