 Our elegant and artisanal handmade ceramic coffee or tea mugs are perfect for book lovers, fantasy enthusiasts, and those who appreciate self-improvement and motivation. Each wheel thrown 12oz mug is glazed in your choice of satin black, white, or green and features a stunning 22k gold illustration inspired by the Lord of the Rings's scene of Gandalf fighting the Balrog. These high-quality, collectible mugs make wonderful gifts for yourself or your loved ones on special occasions. Expertly crafted and beautifully designed, our mugs not only serve as utilitarian drinkware but also as a daily source of inspiration.

Each mug is handmade with locally sourced stoneware in Greenville, SC by trained and skilled potters. Due to the handmade nature of the mugs no two will be exactly the same.

Care instructions:

These mugs are Dishwasher safe, but due to the inclusion of real 22k gold they are NOT microwave safe. 

Disclaimer: Unique Characteristics of Handcrafted Pottery

At Donovan Pottery each mug is a labor of love and artistic expression. We pride ourselves on creating all our beautiful pieces in our small cozy studio space, utilizing a single kiln to bring our production line to life.

As artisans, we use a variety of glaze colors, including our special eggshell glaze. We wish to inform our customers that the eggshell glaze is uniquely reactive to ingredients in our other glaze colors. This interaction can occasionally result in a subtle pink blush on mugs with the eggshell glaze. Your mug may also include subtle marks or identifiers of the handmade nature of our practice.

We consider these not flaws, but charming characteristics of handcrafted pottery. Each piece tells its own story, reflecting the intricate process of creation. We hope that you, as our valued customer, will embrace these nuances as part of the beauty and uniqueness of handmade objects.

Thank you for supporting our craft and for appreciating the individuality of each piece you purchase.
