Maufrais Ceramic Mug - Speckled Sand
Part of our Maufrais Tableware Collection
Ideal for that first cup of coffee in the morning. The bodies of these mugs are made on the potter’s wheel, and handles are then attached by the hand. Our hand-thrown stoneware mugs are perfectly proportioned, one-of-a-kind, raw textured finish, which is contrasted beautifully by an interior glazing for an earthy finish.
Each piece is hand-thrown to bring out slight variations. It takes approximately a week from start to finish by a group of 7 artisans in their Tonalá, pueblo workshop. The area is known as the heart of Mexican ceramic heritage.

Each piece is hand-throw on a wheel. It takes one week from start to finish. The clay is a custom blend of various powders (native to the region) to create a raw matte exterior and neutral color palette.
The clay is mixed by foot and is then kneaded before throwing each piece by hand. The piece dries in the sun for a couple of days before it's stamped, glazed inside and outside, and then fired in the kiln for half a day.
