Trees on Earth

Celebrate the spectacle of the changing seasons with these joyous, paint-flecked ceramic mugs. Each hand-thrown and painted piece comes complete with a special indentation for your thumb, known as the "comfy nudge." 50% of the energy that powers Eric Hendrick and Noelle Van Hendrick's Vermont studio comes from CVPS Cow Power, which means that the generators they use run on renewable methane from cow manure. Green both in the method that they're created and in their messaging, these charming mugs embrace the majesty of the trees and the brilliant colors they carry with each coming year while reminding us to Love the Trees. Handmade by Eric Hendrick and Noelle Van Hendrick in Vermont.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

      The cups are perfect! Just keep in mind that they may not come as perfectly shaped as the picture conveys. Didn't matter much, and added to the charm if you like that kind of thing.

      Comments about FOUR SEASONS MUGS - SET OF 4:

      I bought these because we recently started drinking more coffee and don't have that many mugs. First off they are beautiful. Each one has a tree on it from each of the seasons, very cute. They don't have a handle, instead they have an indentation for your thumb, which is fine. The only small issue I have with them is that they aren't as big as I thought they were, they probably only hold about 8 oz, and when you put hot coffee into them they get hot. I guess that makes sense, but since they don't have a handle it makes it harder to hold the mug. Overall, I still love them and would keep them but would make sure the size isn't an issue when recommending them to a friend.

        Comments about FOUR SEASONS MUGS - SET OF 4:

        These mugs are lovely. A bit on the small side. Wish they were more functional. Probably great for lukewarm/cold beverages, but not great for a hot cup of coffee or tea. Makes the mugs too hot to hold.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The most annoying thing about this purchase was that I specifically contacted Uncommon Goods regarding the use of these mugs, since I had a sneaky suspicion that they might not handle hot beverages well, and didn't really receive the correct answer. I paid for the shipping to my home, but contacted Uncommon Goods regarding the return and they will be providing a shipping label for the return.

        Kudos to them for fixing their mistake.

                    Wanted these mugs for a long time. Finally bought. They are beautiful. A bit on the small side though if you use large mugs for coffee. Fine for average cup of joe though.

                      Just received these as a Christmas gift, absolutely love them! So cute, looks exactly like the picture. And the indent for holding fits and feels great. -Can't wait to have these for many years to come.

                            From the photo, it appears these mugs say simply "Love." I ordered them or my brother's wedding, only to find that they actually read "Love the trees, please." Customer Service insists that this information is clear from the description, but I don't see it. If you're looking for a wedding/romantic gift, these aren't for you.
