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.

Love But

We love the cups but with the rim being so thick as you drink it runs down the side. I love how perfect the date is and our initials are so cute..

If I'd seen in store probably wouldn't buy again

The quality on this product is fine. But it's just more "folk art" style than was expecting. Not really my taste now that we have them. But would possibly still give to someone else as a gift.

Exceptional quality, very personal

5

It is a very comfortable mug and keeps a beverage hot a lot longer than a typical coffee mug. Not only is it highly personal, it's also quite practical. Very solid and well made

Cute mugs...but a bit expensive

4

The mugs are very cute, however I think they are expensive for what they are. I also think they could be a bit larger.
