Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn Mug

When he's not galloping through a magical forest filled with fireflies, fairy nymphs, and shimmering pools of water promising eternal youth, Elwood the Rainbow Unicorn Mug is a fanciful companion to your coffee, tea, or hot cocoa.

Potter JoAnn Stratakos brings this adorably rotund unicorn to life by sculpting him by hand out of stoneware. Elwood features ample room for your favorite hot beverage along with charming details, such as inquisitive blue eyes, a hoofed base, and a glittery rainbow mane unfurling from his gilded mystical horn. Simply summon Elwood when you're in need of a pick-me-up and watch your wish for a more magical moment come true. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

JoAnn Stratakos

Much thought and years of experience go into each piece of pottery by JoAnn Stratakos. All pieces are original designs created and produced exclusively by the artist in her studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. They are made of stoneware clay, which has splendid serviceability and resists chipping. Each piece is hand-dipped in glazes that JoAnn has formulated. Hand-dipping requires more time than spraying, but gives each piece subtle variations and its unique character. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete, with your decor and the foods being served. collection

          This amazing mug did not disappoint. I purchase two of these as a wedding gift for a friend and they where the highlight of the gift opening. Well made and sturdy.

              Comments about ELWOOD THE RAINBOW UNICORN MUG:

              I was worried about this mug not being sturdy enough, or chipping or the unicorn horn being chipped off easily....This is actually a REALLY cute and VERY sturdy mug! It is crafted very well, with a thick handle and the unicorn horn on the front is pretty thick to where it won't just *snap* off somehow. Not easily, anyway. I was a little concerned it might get jostled in the dishawasher and I'd break the horn off, but, nope. It hasn't happened. This is a great mug, beautifully painted. I have used it a lot and washed in the dishwasher many times. No chips, no breaks, no fading. My concerns with spending the amount for this mug (it's EXPENSIVE!?) were for nothing. It really is well made and staying intact. No worries. If you love it, BUY IT!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was in a nice padded box. Great, clean condition. I had no need to contact customer service.

                Bought this as a gift for my husbands birthday. When he opened it we both were impressed on the handmade quality and details. From little feet at the bottom to the fantastic sparkle rainbow glaze on the outside. It seriously doesn't get better than this. We throw pottery ourselves, so this was a super cool addition to our coffee mugs. nevef had a happier cup of coffee!

                        This is a fun mug, - it already has a name (Elwood)and becomes an instant friend with its four legs and colorful tail. Just be sure to hold it by the handle or Elwood's horn might poke your nose! It's a good size and heavier weight and feels substantial in the hand.
