Faux Bois, Real Romance

Like young lovers carving their initials into a tree, this handmade pair of mugs recreates the ultimate romantic gesture. Artist Gina DeSantis hand throws each mug on a potter's wheel before carving a unique faux-bois pattern to the creamy porcelain. The knots, grooves, and rings frame a hand painted declaration of love—you and your other half's initials, complete with an anniversary date and a charming heart and arrow. These one-of-a-kind cups are the perfect companion as you curl up with your morning coffee and the love of your life. Handmade in Ohio.

“I make work that brings happiness to the home and life's daily routines. I want my mug to be the first thing you grab in the morning to make your coffee.”

Gina knew she wanted to be an artist from an early age; she would overtake the kitchen of her childhood home with her art projects. As an adult, she realized her calling was to work clay, and in 2006 she earned her MFA in ceramics from Kent State University. Based in Lakewood, Ohio, she is inspired by the colors, textures, and patterns found in nature. She firmly believes that creativity happens equally in and out of the studio, and loves taking bike rides along the towpath or heading to the lake to get out of a rut.

This is the second set of personalized mugs I've purchased for friends and their response both times has been "we absolutely love them!" It feels good to see your anniversary date along with the couples first initial on the mugs. It lets the recipient know that their wedding day was also very special to you too!

I purchased the Faux Bois mugs as a wedding present for my brother. When I received the mugs, I was very disappointed. When compared to the picture on the website and in the magazine, the heart is much larger and takes up the whole height of the mug. In the sample photo, the heart appears much smaller. Additionally, the handwriting is sloppy. It looks like it was drawn on by a child with a marker. I am very dissatisfied with the purchase and will not be giving these away as a wedding gift. They are not worth $72 and you would be better off buying your own white mugs and writing on them with a sharpie.

Additionally, I have tried to contact Uncommon Goods and have heard nothing back from them. I emailed (but could not get through the firewall), called, and was told that the supervisor of personalized products, Jason, would contact me. I have yet to hear anything back...

            These were given to a newly engaged couple. Their wedding will be on the lake and reception in the woods. This gift was perfect.
