Artisan handmade mugs are the perfect gift for any occasion. People make them by hand, which means they will never be the same as other ones you've seen before. Plus, many people don't make them anymore because it's hard to do and takes a lot of time!

This article contains information on finding your favourite artisan handmade mug and why they make such great gifts.

Green Ceramic Eau De Nil Mug - Judy Caplin Ceramics £25

It is a fantastic green ceramic eau de nil mug from the early to the mid-20th century. The earthenware material has been crafted into an elongated, cylindrical shape and glazed with a vibrant shade of green that works well as both an accent colour and the main feature for your table setting. In addition, this piece is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks and only minor signs of wear on the base.

The mug measures approximately two inches high by three-and-a-quarter inches in diameter at its widest point and holds eight ounces comfortably when filled. This piece would be an excellent addition for someone who appreciates vintage or mid-century ceramics or looking for a fun accent piece to brighten their table setting.

Octopus Fine Bone China Mug - Si Scott Store £18

This artisan mug is handmade in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and glazed with a beautiful cerulean blue gloss finish which is also dishwasher safe - the perfect present for any marine biologist! It is a popular seller, but you can also have this design in black and white if you order more than one. 

Although you can make the order, please allow up to three weeks before they can get them. If you need a mug by a specific date or want something for Christmas, it is best not to wait until the last minute!

Ceramic Glazed Plum Tea Mug - June Dobson Ceramic Artist £20

This handmade mug is glazed with a plum-coloured ceramic and features an all-over polka dot pattern. The base of the cup is left unglazed, giving it a raw look that perfectly complements the polish finish. Each of these mugs is thrown by hand on my pottery wheel and feature unique variations. The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe. Hand washing is better for the longevity of the product.

These mugs are specific to order, meaning that each one will be slightly different from the last as they are all handmade. The glaze used on the mugs has a small amount of metallic pigment, which will produce some subtle variations. It is what makes each mug unique!

Ceramic Glazed Margarite Teasel Tea Mug - June Dobson Ceramic Artist £20

The glaze on these teasel mugs is by hand, and it has the unique quality of being able to withstand temperature changes without cracking. In addition, the delicate handle gives a perfect grip in the palm or around your fingers to hold while letting its warmth seep into your hands.

This handmade mug is the perfect vessel for a piping hot cup of tea, and its thick walls provide insulation that will keep your drink warm longer than other mugs. The ceramic glazes used in making this tea mug are all lead-free and non-toxic, which means they're not just safe to use but also eco-friendly, so you know you're contributing to the health of our planet while enjoying your favourite beverage.

The oversized teapot-shape design of this mug adds a touch of elegance and sophistication, making it an excellent choice for serving guests as well. The broad base keeps the tea inside from spilling out regardless of how vigorously it's agitated by stirring or pouring in the milk.

Tropical Art Deco Mug - O Sable £15

The tropical art deco mug is a handmade ceramic travel mug with an exterior featuring hand-painted palm trees. This traveller's thermos has enough room to hold 16 oz of liquid, and the lid screws on tightly for maximum insulation. In addition, this product is dishwasher and microwave safe. It's an excellent gift for friends, family, or co-workers who enjoy a warm drink on the go!

A Chameleon fine bone China mug is a perfect gift for any occasion. You can give it as wedding or housewarming gifts, new mommies, and daddies. They are dishwasher-safe mugs that aren't available in stores anywhere around you! 

Chameleon's fine bone China mug is made of porcelain clay and glazed with a matte finish, giving it an elegant look even if you don't drink from it. The design on the cup can be anything that suits your taste buds; you could choose any image or draw for one of these mugs.
