The latest in dinosaur extinction research has led to a new theory: perhaps our reptilian friends ran out of coffee. This handmade mug by Keith Hershberger puts a sophisticated spin on your favorite childhood creatures, because, let's face it, you never stopped dreaming of a jurassic adventure. Featured on the mug is a hand-stamped contour as well as a surprise silhouette on the bottom. Choose from diplodocus, tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, or velociraptor, and bring the dinos out of extinction, at least for your morning routine. Handmade in Pittsburgh.

Make it a set of prehistoric pals. Add the Dinosaur Bowls and Dinosaur Cups to your collection.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Sold individually.


Made in Pennsylvania

Keith Hershberger is a potter living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who has made a living working in clay for over 20 years. As a child he spent countless hours drawing dinosaurs, and with his line of dino mugs, bowls, and cups he found a way to bring some of that carefree childhood joy into his ceramic work.

“I make wheel thrown pots that are created with care and meant to be used. In a world that is too fast, and often too dark, my goal is to make space in the day for beauty. I like the idea that I can help create the small moments in the day when we allow ourselves to sit down and have a cup of coffee.”

Love this dino mug!


I love the durability of this mug. The handle is sturdy, and the mug itself is a good size

Cute design but puzzled by the "drippy" paint


It's a very cute image of a triceratops on a well-crafted ceramic mug. The paint has a "drippy" effect that looks sloppy and amateurish

San Francisco, CA


Great mug and a great gift


This will be a great gift for my brother



Great Handcrafted Mug


It's a well crafted mug!



We want more!


Keeps hot beverages hot, but handle and outside of mug also gets very warm.

Florence, SC


Love it! Sturdy, classy, fun.


It is stylish, heavy, and holds a great volume. Plus, it's a subtle "fun" cup -- it initially looks like a classy hand-thrown pottery piece, and then when you notice the dinosaur, it makes it all that much better. Love it!

Great gift


My son in law requested this cup for his birthday. He saw it on line and really liked the design. He is a computer designer so he's very picky about designs and he thought this was particularly unique.

Roxbury, Ct


These are great!


Great looking, easy to hold, great detail to artwork
