Taste the Universe everyday from one of the most intricate mugs on the planet.
Neptune Mugs are inspired by the gasses spinning around the blue Planet Neptune. They are so incredibly difficult to craft because two mugs must hang sideways in the 2280 degree F. kiln firing, counterbalanced, with all glazes melting perfectly together.
Vibrant color contrasts on circular, slowly crafted mugs only come through hours of tedious work. Interior, food-safe colors are also tediously applied with up to 5 different glazes, which must melt perfectly in order for each mug to be successfully finished.
If the glazes turn out successfully, the colors will resemble those found in nebulae gas clouds, like those captured by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of spinning galaxies.
These mugs are not meant to duplicate exact cosmic surfaces, but instead to represent how these surfaces feel when they are translated into clay in the form of a handcrafted, pottery mug.
They are unique, functional pieces of cosmic art that are truly out of this world.
