FAQ

What clay body do you use for your mugs?

I switch between cone 6 stoneware and cone 10 porcelain. Currently I am working with the stoneware. I like to use speckled and white stoneware.  
 

Are your mugs dishwasher and microwave safe?

 

Yes, my mugs are dishwasher, microwave, and food safe, but I highly recommend with any handmade pottery that you hand wash with a soft rag or sponge with dish soap. My mugs exteriors (if they are matte) are coated in a liquid quartz sealer. This makes the mugs food and drink safe, scratch and stain resistant, and it prevents the color from fading!

I ordered my mug today, how long will it take for me to get my order?

First, each mug is handmade! I start each mug with a ball of clay. I will then throw it on the wheel, hand sculpt and carve, fire the mug 2x or more (each firing process takes a few days, and then hand paint with underglaze and glaze. Most of my mugs that appear in my Shop will already be made and ready to ship out! On some occasions the mugs are set online to "Pre-order" and still need to be made. This can take anywhere between 4-6 weeks. I will usually put it in the description of the mug to let you know if its made and ready to ship or if it needs to be made to order. If you are ever unsure please email me at kimberlycanfield.h@gmail.com 

How large are the espresso cups + coffee mugs?


The coffee mugs can hold anywhere between 10-18 ounces and the espresso shot cups can hold between 1-2 shots. All items are hand thrown on a wheel and then sculpted onto of. While I do my best to be consistent, dimensions may vary from item to item. I do specify under the descriptions for each mug how much liquid they hold and pricy accordingly. 

 

Why do my mugs look slightly different than the ones online?

 

Each of my mugs are made by hand! The perk of that is you get your own original mug. The facial expressions are always going to slightly vary and even the color might be a slight tint darker or lighter than what you see on the computer screen.
