Coffee on the go is the only way to go in my opinion. While I consider virtually any mug to be a travel mug, it's a lot handier to have one with a silicone lid that keeps the liquid gold from splashing onto the center console of your car every morning.
After 3 years of product development and testing different styles I've finally landed on the travel mug that passed everyone's litmus test in the first round of samples. They're easy to clean, fit your cup holder, are eco-friendly handmade pottery, supporting a small woman-owned business, coffee shops seem to love it when you bring in your own cup (at least here in Indianapolis), no more plastic lids going into the landfill, and best of all it is one of a kind. Yep. Even when I make a hundred of something, each one is a little bit different and bears the marks of the makers' hands.
We hope you enjoy your favorite hot (or cold) beverage in one of our handmade classic travel mugs.
We tend to use them without the silicone band around here which seems fine for a latte, cappuccino or even an Americano. We have found, though, that if you love a good drip coffee you're definitely going to want the silicone heat band or be super crafty and make your own coffee sleeve.
The large 18-20 oz travel mug includes a silicone band. The 10oz and 14-16 oz do not at this point. If you get yours and think you really wish you had a silicone band just shoot us a message and when we get our next shipment we'll drop one in the mail for you. We're still learning about what people will really use and attempting to minimize waste.
Your new favorite travel mug is also microwave and dishwasher safe!
Vintage roses, modern design and a textured handle all play well together making this a mug you'll continue to reach for whether at home or on the go.
The handmade pottery Vintage Roses Travel Mug is wheel thrown and goes through a total of 3 kiln firings before it is ready to ship out the door to you. The travel lid is 100% silicone and fitted tightly so that even over the years as it stretches from heat and use, it will still fit comfortably and keep the dribbles at bay.
Each mug is one of a kind. You may not receive the exact mugs in the photo but you will receive one equally lovely and unique.
Microwave & Dishwasher safe. Holds approximately 10 ounces of your favorite wine...errr...coffee.
Speaking of coffee, for a limited time we can create a gift bundle for you with a travel mug, handmade coffee scoop and 4 oz bag of one our favorite fresh roasts from Circadian Coffee here in Indianapolis.
If we have the pottery on hand we'll ship it right out to you, but often we are making items to order. Please be patient with us as each and every piece is completely handmade. Allow 2-4 weeks for delivery on average. There is the possibility of longer delays as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions.
The Loft Mug will become your daily go-to for everything from your morning coffee to your evening tea. Curl up and cuddle this generously sized mug while you contemplate the current state of affairs, or even better, while daydreaming of a time the world returns to some sense of normalcy.
We want to feed people! It's one of our missions to help improve food security in our neighborhoods. Each month we will pay forward $1 from the sale of every Loft Mug to a local food bank or school lunch program.
Each mug is handmade in our Pottery studio in Indianapolis, Indiana. Up to eight artisans are involved in the making of each ceramic mug. We put our passion and dedication for slow living into every step of the process.
Holds approximately 16 ounces of coffee, tea, water, juice, soup, mac n cheese, wine, frosty cold beer, kombucha, miso or whatever else you might want to put in it.
The signature handle fits comfortably in your hand. Your fingers will nestle into each divot creating a comfortable rhythm of our fingers and yours. We may not be able to shake hands right now, but we can still connect through something as simple as a mug handle.
All our pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe (with the exception of the rare occurence when we put some gold luster on something. We've all microwaved something metal in our lives, right? Just to see what happens? No? Just me? I don't buy it).
As always we offer $5 flat rate shipping on your entire order shipped within the continental United States.

****Please note - the tshirts are printed on demand in the United States. We don’t keep them in stock, they’re made to order. The printer is experiencing unusually high demand and limited staff while they work to keep everyone as safe as possible. They’re collaborating with other printers across the United States to fill orders as quickly as possible. Please be patient and know we are checking in weekly on progress. Like us, they are filling orders in the same order they are received. Your pottery will arrive separate from your shirt as we’re shipping from different locations so you may receive one and not the other at the same time. We appreciate your patience! ***

There is just something fun about working with clay to make a series of pots that all have subtle differences and then texturing them in whatever way strikes my fancy at the moment. Digging through my boxes of handmade stamps, finding mark making tools around the studio and just playing is part of the studio practice that I most look forward to.
The Artist’s Choice Unglazed Planter is hand built using a form I threw on my potter’s wheel then uniquely textured based on the textures that strike my fancy in the moment. No two are quite alike.
Made from a low fire earthenware clay, not dissimilar to what terracotta pots at the greenhouse are made of. It helps manage the moisture in the soil and lends a rustic and earthy touch in a modern interior.
Each planter has a little drainage hole in the bottom for watering and includes an unglazed saucer.
Measures approximately 2.5” high x 4.5” diameter. These little planters are terrific for a succulent-scape.
As part of the Artist’s Choice collection, the planter you receive will be a surprise! We’re going to choose one for you because that’s what this is all about!
One of the things I missed once we started growing as a studio was the time I used to spend just playing with new ideas. I can still do the playing now but the idea of photographing each individual piece, writing a description for the website, uploading it all, then managing all those one of a kind pieces was daunting. That’s how the Artist’s Choice was born! Several people have enjoyed choosing a mug, or a planter or a bowl because they love the collection and being surprised by which individual one arrives in their post. We hope you love the surprise, too!
$2 from the sale of each Artist’s Choice Unglazed Planter will be donated to our Feed The Artists initiative to help us feed more artists in Indianapolis economically impacted by Covid-19!
There is something so delightful about little pots. When you put a little succulent in a little pot it's like cute to the tenth power!
We also love to use these tiny handmade pottery planters for wheat grass, sprouting micro-greens and chia.
Each set of 3 tiny succulent planters includes one straight side, one cone, and one round planter in a single planter.
There is no hole in the bottom of these little planters but don't worry, all you have to do is put a little gravel in the bottom for drainage. When we water our succulents we douse them well then pour out the extra water into the sink so it isn't waterlogged. Just follow your watering instructions for your particular plant and you'll be fine!
As always, we have flat rate $5 shipping on your entire order in the continental United States.
