Making of a mug
We've added a new product to our range - the Simple Mug.
Simple it may look, but it has taken many months in the design, making and perfecting. Our mug
has a generous bowl, and standing squatter than a normal mug, it could be considered a cross
between a tea cup and a mug, worthy of doing both jobs. It works well with the rest of our porcelain
tableware range and will be available from 1st October.

Making the mug involves several stages:
Clay is formed within a plaster mould, using the jigger & jolley machine.
Laying the extruded clay over a dowel to create the handles.
Julian carefully positions the handles with slip.
Our mug is glazed with a blue hue ready for firing.
