Handmade Butterfly Mugs
These unique handmade butterfly mugs are made just for you! Imagine sipping coffee while watching real butterflies visit your garden. Or maybe it is in the winter and this mug will remind you of what is to come in the spring. Each mug is made individually by hand and slight variations in shape and color are to be expected. Our local artist uses a little bit of skill and a little bit of love for pottery to create these unique mugs, and she decorated the mugs with butterflies specifically for our customers.
Handmade Butterfly Mug Details:
We offer three different designs. Each mug is approximately 4.5″ tall and 3.25″ in diameter, and holds 12 oz of your favorite hot beverage. The mugs are food safe, and dishwasher and microwave safe. You may still want to handwash the mug to make it last as long as possible. Treat these as you would any other dish, but with a little extra love and care.

The second design, Butterfly Garden, is a blue mug with a profile of a butterfly in a field of flowers. The blue glaze is Sky.
The third design, Verdant Flight, is a simple green mug with 2 colorful butterflies. The glaze is Gun Metal Green.

About the Artist:
Sally Shive was a science educator in the SC public system for 32 years before she became a ceramic artist. She dabbled in clay here and there, but genuinely fell in love with it when she attended the John C Campbell Folk School in NC where she learned wheel throwing. Sally sought studio time and space, which she found at Carolina Clay Connection in Charlotte, NC. She developed her skills further in the ceramics program at Winthrop University in her hometown of Rock Hill, SC, and she now has her own home studio.
