Wood You Be Mine?

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," says ceramics artist Gina DeSantis. 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 two mugs that commemorate our wedding date twelve years ago are individualized expressions of our special relationship. We'll use them for morning coffee and they may even serve as soup mugs this winter. Either way, they'll be a delight to use, especially since they are decorated with details about our ongoing romance!

          Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Porcelain Faux Bois Mug Set:

          The mugs are a nice size, original idea that fit perfectly into the theme of the wedding (purchased as part of a shower present), however I am a little disappointed with the customization- it should have been darker and needed to be glazed to match the finish of the mug, it looks a bit like it was just markered on. Too expensive for the final product's result

              The mugs were a gift for my nieces' 40th Wedding Anniversary. I really loved the way they turned out and I will probably reorder them again for another anniversary.

                Mugs arrived within expected time frame. They have a nice, solid weight to them. They feel like they'll stand the test of time which is important considrring the cost. Definitely happy with purchase.
