Barrel Mug


Holding a generous 20 ounces, this barrel-style mug is just right for your favorite hot or cold beverage. These mugs are handcrafted from stoneware and fired in a reduction kiln, which gives them their vibrant colors.

Made in North Carolina, all of Paul's pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, making them the perfect addition to your kitchen and table.

Available in red or blue, each mug measures approximately 6" tall and 4" in diameter (not including the handle).

About Paul Ray

Paul Ray creates his pottery by hand in historic Seagrove, NC, where his family has been throwing pottery since the late 1700’s. Ray crafts his pieces with the help of his wife, Evelyn. Their goal is to enhance the celebration of daily life and enrich its simple joys. They believe there is an intimate connection between human hands when we use pottery, a shared moment that often seems increasingly absent in our lives.

These pieces are designed to use in the oven, microwave, and dishwasher.  Each piece is finished with a beautiful lead-free glaze.  When baking, always start in a cool oven.  Never, ever put over an open flame or on the stove top.
