POTTERY WEST Handcrafted Stoneware Tall Mug - Sand


A well-formed mug for tea or coffee, handmade in Sheffield by Pottery West.

These mugs are thrown on the potter’s wheel in an iron-rich flecked stoneware, and stamped with Pottery West’s maker’s mark. They are glazed with a dipped effect that leaves some raw clay at the base for a pleasing textural contrast.

This is Catherine and Matt West’s original mug design and has become a firm favourite over the years. It has a pared back form with straight vertical sides and a well proportioned handle that begins around a third of the way down the side and connects to the base of the mug. The mug feels slim yet strong, with a well balanced weight to its base.

Ideal for any hot drink, or as a gift for someone who enjoys minimalist ceramic kitchenware and tableware. 

Glazed in 'Sand', a simple yet interesting glaze that uses red iron oxide as its main colourant to create warm sandy tones with plenty of iron speckles that appear orange, red and brown. 


  • Volume: 325ml
