Wood You Be Mine?

Gina DeSantis' admiration for the natural world is at the root of all of her collections. In this personalized mug, creamy porcelain gains an arboreal elegance when she hand-throws the mugs on her potter's wheel, and uses wax-resist and carving techniques to create a faux-bois pattern, complete with the knots, grooves, and rings that give natural bark its unique texture. On top of that, she lets you make your own mark on her fantastic foliage—she hand paints your choice of paired initials and date, framed in a heart and arrow, as if carved there in a declaration of love. These one-of-a-kind cups are ideally suited to join you as you curl up with your morning coffee and the love of your life. Set of 2. Handcrafted by Gina DeSantis in Ohio.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

      This is the third set of mugs I have purchased for a wedding gift. I really like the fact they have the date and the couple's initials. The style and appearance will fit anyone's kitchen. A perfect gift.

            Comments about PERSONALIZED PORCELAIN FAUX BOIS MUG SET:

            I bought these mugs as a wedding present for my best friend and her fiancé, who were both bio majors and love everything outdoorsy and having to do with trees. They chose to incorporate a simple heart with their first initials on a tree as their theme (it is on their invitations and will appear on their cake), so these are absolutely perfect for them. I cannot wait to give them these beautiful mugs!

                          A mug that's intended to look like a tree trunk should have shades of brown, not just white. Feather end of the arrows look more like chicken feet. Lip of mug is too high above the handle. Oberall, not very artistically rendered.
