The handle can be comfortably gripped with four fingers. Perfect for a cold beer or a hot tea. Holds up to a 16 ounce pour. Measures 4” wide including the handle, and 6.5” tall.
HOW IT's MADE...
The Shelter Collection ceramics are handmade in partnership with STARworks, NC, a non-profit working to revive the local economy through craft and design. Operating out of a formally abandoned hosiery factory, the talented and dedicated team of ceramicist hand throw each piece using clay and glazes that have been harvested locally and processed in-house. Each piece is an attempt by the artist to create the perfect shape, so slight variance exist within the work. The artists consider this a way to fine tune their skills through repetition. The finished wares express a moment in time and the hand of the individual artist.Learn More about the Collection
