Gray Coffee Portrait Mug
to sponsor a tree at the El Lugar resort.
[this listing is for one cup]
This earthy, hand-folded, gray ceramic mug is the perfect mug for your morning coffee. It is wonderful for cold drinks as well.
What’s special about this mug is the portrait images that I have hand-carved using the sgraffito* technique on the outside. Each cup has a different portrait of a beautiful person from a different culture from somewhere in the world. I love these cups! If you want to buy just one, add this item to your cart ↗. But I would love to make you a set!
Do not hesitate to message me about a custom order.
