Creating handmade mugs is a two week process, starting with preparing the clay and turning the mugs on a pottery wheel. After the mugs have dried overnight, they are trimmed into their final shape. When they are leather-dry, the handles can be attached. The so-called handling is a tricky and time-consuming process, but it gives the mugs their character. With their handles attached, the mugs will be left to dry for a few days before their first firing in our kiln. The bisque mugs are glazed by hand, after which they revisit the kiln for the second time, to be baked at 1240° celsius (2,264° F). The now finished mugs are ready to be used.
