Clay Coffee Mugs
From our popular Chart Series, the 8oz Mug is a petite size that has won over tea and coffee drinkers alike. It features a fine rim and a comfortable, rounded handle design.
The base of each mug is marked with a section of Penobscot Bay Nautical Chart. These charts are hand screen printed in ceramic ink, then applied and fired directly on to the bare porcelain. They are a permanent part of the mug, and won't rub off over time or come off in the dishwasher.
The Chart Series' colors and imagery speak to the artist's love for his home state. From a young age Austin P. Smith learned to navigate the waters of Maine's beautiful rocky coastline, and was struck by the elaborate maze of islands that make this area so unique. No two Chart Mugs are alike, meaning that each one is like an exploration, hinting at undiscovered places, or conjuring memories of familiar ones. When making these mugs in the studio, we still notice new details of these charts we know so well.
