Reusable coffee cups get natural and beautiful with the Kara Leigh Ford stoneware travel mug

Reusable coffee cups come in all shapes, sizes and now a new material thanks to Kara Leigh Ford who has created travels mugs from stoneware.

The Somerset-based designer made the travel mugs from stoneware clay on her potter’s wheel. Strong and durable, each mug is a unique piece and comes with a pink or grey silicon lid and removable grey sleeve.

After being thrown on a potter’s wheel and partially dried, the mug base is fettled and a potter’s mark added. Once bone dry it is fired to 1060 degrees centigrade, then decorated with a speckle white ‘Seas Salt’ glaze and warm matt grey glaze.

These beautiful travel mugs are a perfect gift for those looking for a reusable coffee cup made from eco-friendly stoneware.
