Embrace the spirit of heroism with each morning brew using our 'Hero Mug', a beacon of motivation for fans of epic tales and self-empowerment. Skillfully hand-thrown from the finest locally sourced stoneware in Greenville, SC, this 12oz mug is a testament to artisanal craftsmanship and fantasy-inspired elegance.

Choose from Fortress Black, Tower White, or Ranger Green, each adorned with a breathtaking 22k gold inspired by the Lord of the Ring's scene of Rohan saving Minas Tirith. This isn't just drinkware; it's a daily reminder to channel your inner strength, designed to kindle the fires of inspiration with every use.

Unique Features:

  • Artisan Selection: Handmade by expert potters, ensuring no two mugs are identical.
  • Inspiring Design: Features motivational text alongside the luxurious gold illustration.
  • Gift of Valor: Ideal for book lovers, fantasy fans, or as a symbol of encouragement.

Care Instructions: To preserve the gold illustration's luster, these mugs are dishwasher safe but not suitable for microwave use.

Craftsmanship Disclaimer: Our unique eggshell glaze interacts with other colors in the kiln to create a one-of-a-kind finish, sometimes yielding a gentle pink hue. Subtle marks underscore the distinctive handmade quality of each mug. Celebrate these individualities as a hallmark of handcrafted artistry and the story behind your mug's journey from our kiln to your hands.

Great but inconsistent

Love the quality, looks great but I had ordered it as a replacement for one that broke and the new one is significantly smaller than my other mug (maybe 10 oz instead of 12). I suppose it's to be expected with handmade clay but the inconsistency is a little annoying.


I bought this as a white elephant for a Christmas gift, but kept it for myself. The mug is well-made, and looks beautiful. It also inspires me when I need a little push towards action. Very well done to all involved!! I have shown this mug, which is my new favorite, to many friends and family. It is the only mug that I display publicly in my apartment, and fits well with my LOTR stuff. Beautiful, great for taking to work, and I highly recommend. Thank you for making such an amazing mug!


Amazing craftsmanship! Definitely my new favorite mug!

Christmas Mugs

Got 3 different Hero’s Journey mugs for my brothers and dad for Christmas. They absolutely loved them. The team was also incredibly responsive.

Excellent Customer Service

I was about to order a mug and tea for Christmas when I realized that I didn't know how to request the green glaze for the mug on the combo page, and also that the green glaze mugs were marked as out of stock. I figured I'd wait for a while and try again after Christmas, but I got an email that day from Donovan Pottery asking if I needed help with anything, since I hadn't completed my purchase. I explained the situation, and within an hour received a reply explaining that they had a new batch of mugs about to be made and could reserve several for a green glaze and also how to request the green glaze for the mug. I made the order immediately!

I received the mug promptly and am very pleased with its quality. It will be a gorgeous and encouraging item to drink my tea with for years to come. "Forth, and fear no darkness!"
