Post a picture of the coffee mug, cup, tea receptacle, etc. you drank out of today. No glasses (unless you drink your hot beverage from a glass).

No...I stole that from the family home.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments Any particular family's home?

The photo is not mine, but this is identical to the coffee mug I use in the morning.

My family's home.

I've discovered that there is a perfect coffee mug: perfect ratio of height to width, perfect thickness of ceramic, perfect size and shape of handle. Once you've held it in your hand and sipped from it, every other mug feels inadequate. (The Yale mug is not perfect...somehow, it feels too dense.)


message 6: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments I agree. The Grant Wood mug seems perfect to me for coffee. I have a slightly larger mug that I prefer for tea, as I usually make tea one mug at a time rather than preparing a full pot, so a bigger mug works a bit better.

I agree. I usually drink tea to warm up, and the bigger the mug the more I can warm up.

I'm also bothered by mugs with angled sides, like

Of course it is! :) (now where can I get one?)

Linda (LindaCee) | 292 comments My mug is plain, black and boring :( I used to have a wicked witch of the west mug but somebody chipped it.

Both of my favorite mugs are Nightmare Before Christmas mugs, too. I can't find any pictures of them though. I'll have to try and take one with my husband's phone later today.

It has some matching pals, a striped tea pot, striped mugs, and an identical twin.

Best coffee mug ever. It's HUGE & not too heavy.

Barb Not actually my mug ... because it's at work on my desk ... but this is what it looks like.




message 25: by Jammies (new)

Jammies I generally use one of my kogimugs. I am too lazy to look for separate pictures, but here is a pic of most of them:



The one I'm using today is on the top far right of the bottom shelf, the grey one with pink flowers.

Barb Did Koji make all those? I really like the one on the bottom with the green stripes.

A kogimug is made by my friend kogijiki, who is a member here when we can winkle her out from her cave and is also a very talented potter. Her Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/kogijiki

Barb, yes. :D

evie, those are my first two dogs, Stormy and Beau. Kogi also did mugs for each dog and their urns when the sad days came.


kogijiki (covered in mud) (kogijiki) | 235 comments Awww, thanks guys! I also make insanely huge mugs so be careful or a pot of coffee may fit in them.

I'm also kinda slow right now due to the MS but I do still do them.

Jammies kogibutt just did the awesomest mug for my new/old doggie!

You are very talented.

 ~Geektastic~ (atroskity) | 3207 comments Those are great mugs, jammies! And Kogi, seeing as your very talented hands made them. I always wanted to throw pottery, but didn't have the time to use the studio when I was in the class, so I stuck to hand building some very ugly jugs.

I just wish I could find pix of my mugs online. I can't find any of them. I hate depriving onlookers of the beauty of my mugs.

That's a placemat?? I assumed that was instructional materials for Sally's students...
