XL Tavern Mug - Trails End

0 left in stock

A series of glazes inspired by the Northwoods of Minnesota. These finishes are the result of carefully blending and layering glazes over the surface of either our classic red stoneware or warm speckle stoneware. The resulting finishes in varying shades earth tones and patterns are reminiscent of tree bark, lake stones, flowing rivers, later winter thaw and mossy canyons. Glazes flow and swirl together creating patterns and textures that are uniquely one of a kind to each item. 

A dramatic and imposing shape and size, the XL Tavern Mug lifts up an extra half inch from our regular tall tavern mugs with the added function and design touch of a slightly flared rim. I originally designed this extra large style mug for Jason to enjoy his favorite root beer floats with a large enough handle to accommodate his big tough guy hands. I quickly found I loved them for my morning coffee and decided to add them to the regular rotation. These tankard style mugs are oversized and quite fun to enjoy your morning breakfast smoothies, a milk shake, a creamy latte, or an oversized jug of cold brew (for advanced cold brew drinkers only). 

XL Tavern Mugs are all 5" Tall and hold 20 oz. 

Trails End: Like the dramatic, haunting, moody landscape near the end of the iconic Gun Flint Trail, this glaze has a soft smokey grey look and feel, with a slight variation in tone and texture. Depending on how this glaze fires from one batch to the next, there may be some dramatic red-brown breaking around the rim and/or heavy or light speckling throughout. Think toasty marshmallows, smokey campfires and cozy rainy days. 


The Gifts of Imperfection:

When purchasing artisan handmade products it is understood there is a gift of human imperfection and character present in every item--character and soul that is absent from mass produced machine made homewares. Everything from the weather, to the temperature of the clay, to my mood the day I am working has an effect on your handmade items. Some items are glazed a little more heavily from one batch to the next. Some handles come out a little lighter while others come out more robust. These are all characteristics of artisan made products crafted with human hands and soul. Slight variations in shape, size, glaze application are to be expected and cherished for their very personal and human touch.

Because of this, returns and exchanges are not accepted, except for in the event products arrive damaged in shipping, in which case a replacement or refund will be issued.
