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.

    These are beautiful. Very nice size (a little larger than I expected which was nice). This set of original and sentimental mugs is something they can treasure throughout their marriage. The bride posted a picture on FaceBook the day after they married exclaiming how much they loved them and were using them the very morning after they were wed.

          The best part of the day is in the morning when my husband and I share a cup of coffee and read the paper together. These coffee mugs add to that cozy feeling by reminding us of the love we share for one another. Though we've never had an opportunity to carve our initials into a tree, it feels like we have with these coffee mugs. We save these mugs for the weekend so that we can truly enjoy sipping from them while reading the news. Love them!

          Poor quality; poor rendering

              Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Porcelain Faux Bois Mug Set:

              For the money, these are poor quality. One cup was 'passable', but the second one had the black paint used for personalization smeared all over the design. Looks dirty or like a kid did it, especially since both are not like this. I'd never buy this product, and I won't give it as a gift.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Poor packing, as box was gaping open when arrived.

              I use for the first cup of coffee through the last cup of tea. Have had warmed egg nog and hot cider in it. It holds heat well and comes out fine from microwave. One of them always comes out of the dishwasher with the bottom blackened. Kind of weird. It goes away so I think it doesn't dry completely. The cups are plenty large. They don't fit in car cup holder.
