Holiday Bonsai Mugs

by Chuck Iker, Iker Bonsai Pots

For years I have made holiday gift mugs for family and friends. Each year I make them a little different and use a unique glaze. It has very much become a tradition for those close to me, so much so that I live in fear of hurting someone’s feelings if I run out. So this year I got an early start and made 100 mugs. I will have more than I need for personal gifts so I am offering some for sale. I can attest that they are a well received gift option for your bonsai enthusiast or yourself.

My 2018 mugs have a new green glaze I have been working with. It is a satiny green glaze breaking to pewter. Each has a sprig bonsai on the front and a nice comfortable strap handle. These are high fired stoneware and are both microwave and dishwasher safe. I am making 40 available for sale. I have listed each with the size in liquid ounce capacity. They range from 10 to 16 ounces. As a reference 10 ounce is a traditional coffee or tea cup size.
