These blue Cosmic Mugs are inspired by a firestorm of nebula gases captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. I think of these mugs as abstract paintings. Real images of deep space galaxy cloud clusters and nebulae inspire my abstract glaze paintings over an "Oil Spot Black" base glaze, meant to reference the night sky.
All of our Stoneware and porcelain pottery is 100% food and dishwasher safe.

I purchased this mug for myself as a Christmas gift, I could not be happier with the stunning beauty of this piece of art. Not only does it fit comfortably in my hand, the handle is perfectly sized, the lip is not to large and sips beautifully. Joel is an amazing artisan and will purchase more in the future.
