  • Drastic temperature changes (from the refrigerator to the hot oven) may cause cracking. Room temperature to cool oven is best. Allow pottery to cool before placing in refrigerator or dishwasher.
  • Do not broil or place on a stovetop burner. Do not store in freezer.
  • Pottery can scratch furniture & cause water stains if placed directly on furniture surface. Use cork tabs or felt on the base of the pottery and/or a trivet or tablecloth to protect furniture.
  • Do not leave pottery outdoors in winter – temperature fluctuations can crack pottery.
  • Low quality cutlery can mark pottery; remove marks with a kitchen abrasive, like Bar Keeper’s Friend. High quality steel cutlery will not mark the pottery.
  • Handcrafted pottery has slight variations in size, color & design, characteristics to be expected and treasured in handcrafted art.
  • And yes, pottery will break if dropped!

  1. Perfection! There’s nothing like hand thrown pottery. Love the feel and look.

    • So glad you like the Heritage Mugs. We appreciate your kind words!

  2. The mugs are so well made and sturdy and just yell out cocoa now!

    • The Heritage Mugs do indeed make great cocoa mugs! Thanks for your review!

  3. My dad was complaining about how coffee mugs aren’t thick enough like they were when he was growing up. I spent hours trying to find a suitable mug with thicker walls. After reading other reviews I decided to give these a shot. I bought one for my mom and dad as Christmas presents. So far my dad has really enjoyed his! He definitely loves the thickness of the mug!

    • What a thoughtful gift, Megan! We are happy to hear your dad is enjoying his new mug and hope it reminds him of the mugs he used growing up. That why we made the heritage mug — it reminds us of the good ole days.
