The City Black Batik Mug will elevate even the simplest of comfort foods - no one will realize that your ramen was made with boiling water, not gourmet! You love gourmet ramen, too? Well, then you’re in luck.
Jason Michael Thomas has said on more than one occasion that this is his favorite mug for serving tea, lattes and soups of all kinds.
The Batik Soup Mug is microwave and dishwasher safe and although I personally prefer to hand washing my favorite pottery, you're welcome to clean your new mug however you'd like! If you do choose to put it in the dishwasher, go with the top shelf and make sure it isn't going to rattle against another item that could potentially cause a chip.
The Batik Mug is comfortable in the hand, even when full to the brim. The wide handle is textured with an antique stamp, adding grip, while the width makes it easy to hold.
Each mug is wheel thrown then the stamped handle is added. Because of the handmade nature of the mug, each one is a little different. That's the beauty of handmade.
To learn the story behind the antique hand carved wooden stamp used on the handle, read my blog post about it.

Snuggled on the sofa in the evening with your new handmade Batik Mug filled with your favorite mac and cheese as you decide whether to catch up on some Netflix or just enjoy some music and read a bit while you gnosh - sounds like a great way to end a hectic day, right?
The Batik Mug was designed to be just the right size and shape for everything from your morning latte to your ramen lunch and evening dinner. We use them more than anything in our cupboard. If you choose to use it for soup and do the quick dash microwave heat up, it’s pretty handy that the batik stamped handle of our stoneware soup mug doesn’t get hot. If you keep yours in the freezer, it’s pretty darn handy for icecream, but I have to tell you, the handle definitely gets cold. It’s kind of nice in August, though.

This mug is generously sized to hold a full 12 ounce can of soup with room to spare. This makes it just the right size for soup, mac and cheese, cereal, ice cream, lattes, pasta and anything else you like to eat on the go or snuggled on the sofa.
Tomato bisque graced with freshly ground juniper looks divine in the turquoise wobble soup bowl made exclusively for Jason Michael Thomas of Urban Ag Indy. Regardless of the soup you most love, the handmade wobble bowl was made for cozying up with something delicious and relaxing.
When you run your hands over the undulating surface of the hand built bowl you'll notice little dips from where our fingers press into the clay during the forming of the shape. Drips and variations in the glaze show through and highlight the shape. Little folds and creases at the top illuminate the construction process of a flat piece of clay being shaped with two hands over a special form created for just this bowl. As you hold The Wobble Soup Bowl your hands are connecting with ours in a most delightful way.
In my kitchen, I love these bowls for more than just soup, though. This is perfect for an evening snack of popcorn or ice cream. Overnight oats or hot oatmeal never looked so good. Sprinkle a little brown sugar and chopped nuts on top and voila! It looks far more gourmet than you'd ever expect. Something about food in a beautiful handmade bowl makes taste even better.
As it turns out, it's also a fantastic succulent planter!
Each bowl is completely unique. If you order multiples at once, we'll sort through the bowls on hand to choose the ones that best nest and stack together so they fit comfortably in your cupboard without taking up too much space.
As always, our pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe, but I always recommend hand washing over putting it into a dishwasher just because the banging around that happens during the wash cycle can cause chips on all your favorite dinnerware. If you choose to put it in the dishwasher, just make sure the lip isn't pressed against something that will cause a chip when it starts vibrating and shaking from the water pressure.
