Winter Mornings with Melissa Mug, A Limited Edition, Collectible Mug

We've done it again and just in time for the winter mornings! Who doesn't love a cup of something in their favorite mug? We want every mug to become someone’s favorite and a part of their morning ritual and our special edition mug is no exception.

We’ve partnered with the artisans in the Bohemian Cat House on Lake Champlain in Vermont to create these meticulously designed, handmade ceramic pieces that celebrate our Muse and Co-Founder Melissa Gilbert’s love of the holiday season. Each mug tells a story - and it’s captivating. You’ll find yourself amongst Melissa’s favorite things - surrounded by sunflowers with her beloved dog Chicago, holiday decorations, geese, poinsettias, holly berries, red robins, roosters and so much more.  There are so many hidden details that will come to life each and every day.

There are only 50 of these mugs available - each numbered and one-of a kind so the flowers may be different on your mug than the photos here. Remember these mugs are formed by hand so size and shape will vary. No two mugs are the same and what we believe makes them so special and unique - just like each of one of us.

Each mug is handmade from start to finish using clay from Ohio. The team makes their own glazes, throws each mug on the wheel, attaches the handles, glazes, prints and hand applies their sepia decals on each piece. The layering of decals requires firing each mug at least 4x in the kiln to achieve its distinctive look.

It takes a minimum of 3-4 weeks for one mug to be finished. There are 27 individual steps taken to complete each mug. Each includes over 50 separate sepia decals that are hand applied before firing.  Our artisans explain the development process HERE

We hope you enjoy and cherish this work of art as much as we do - it’s a special and timeless piece that you’ll love forever.



+ Our mugs are microwave and oven safe since they’ve already endured a 2000 degree kiln.  We would recommend hand washing to preserve the integrity of the hand-decaling.
