This mug is one of a kind. The listing is for the mug pictured above. It is a fully functional piece of art, made by hand and with my heart.
It has a unicorn walking over clouds with golden linings, with a background of roses. Finished with a magnificent and shiny iron pyrite specimen. It has premium 24k German gold accents to add even more sparkles to your coffee or tea ritual.
This mug was made from black stoneware clay, thrown thin on the pottery wheel, hand pulled handles added, carefully decorated by hand, and stamped with my mark on the bottom. It was then slowly dried and cleaned, and first fired.
The decoration part is a lengthy process involving the use of multiple glazes to reach the complex layering effect and beautiful range of colors. Each mug is unique as each application involves some randomness and the heat really plays with the colors and movement of the glazes.
Then the mugs are fired for a second firing to 2200 F in my own cozy home studio. This high firing temperature ensures durability to the piece.
A third firing was done for the 24K gold accents.
The glazes are lead free and food safe. ****HANDWASH*** ***NO MICROWAVE***
Measures approx 5.5" tall. Holds approx 16+ onces.
Thanks for visiting and have a fantastic day!

**** Why is shipping expensive?
Pottery is heavy and breakable, that's why. I do not make money with shipping... When the fees were overestimated, you will be refunded the overages. If my estimate was underestimated, well, you saved and shipping was partially on me :)
**** I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR EXTRA CUSTOM FEES THAT MIGHT OCCUR****
PLEASE PURCHASE MINDFULLY.
* Orders can only be cancelled until they are shipped.
* Canadian customers outside Alberta are responsible for paying their own provincial taxes.
* International customers are responsible for any extra custom fees and taxes.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS : please include a phone number in comments for faster shipping!
Shipping fees are estimated, and can be overestimated depending where you live and on how many items you purchase. If you purchase more than 2 smaller items, chances are that shipping fees are overestimated. *** I WILL REFUND YOU SHIPPING OVERAGES at the time of shipping** or convo me to have a more accurate estimate prior to purchase.

***SHIPPING to other COUNTRIES: I now only ship through DHL with tracking and insurance. Transit time is 2-4 business days. Unfortunately, pottery is heavy and this is why is it very expensive to ship long distances. I pack very carefully, and so far, I had no breakage due to transit.

FAQs * please read *
1) SIGN UP for my INSIDER VIP CLUB to get email alerts and offers. To sign up, head over to www.terrefermepottery.com
2) I do not have pre-orders or custom orders for the time being. NO WHOLESALE and no consignment. I quite enjoy having a direct link with people :) and I don't make a lot of pottery anyways.
3) why is some of your work more expensive? All of my sculptural pieces and highly decorated pieces are highly invested in time, materials, and number of firings. I multi-fired 3-5 times some pieces, and everything is done by my 2 hands with love and intention. The cost of gold will definitely play a big role in the overall cost of a piece. Some gemstones are also rare and precious, so the work will be priced accordingly. I consider my pottery functional art, as every piece is unique and has a story. Thank you for allowing yourself luxury! It is jewelry for coffee/tea/or whatever liquid!
4) Shipping costs: The shipping fees you pay ARE what I pay to send you your order safe and sound. Shipping from Canada is more expensive than shipping USA to USA.
5) If you would love to have some of my work but it says "does not ship to country X"; please convo me in advance so I can give you a quote and prepare ahead for you to snag something when the new work is released.
