We wish The Mug grew on trees, but it doesn't. It's made by real hands, in a real factory, and the process involves quite a few steps. First and foremost, the clay gets pugged in the pug machine to squeeze out any air bubbles that would compromise its super strength.
Then, The Mug body is formed on The Jigger. It's a hand machine that we use a lot to make vessels with depth. Once the main vessel is formed, the team gets up close and personal using trimming tools and sponges to finesse the body. Interested in learning the next steps?
