Yep - you read it right.

It's a bloody mug - A Murder Mug, if you will. Long story short:

Working late nights at the studio, our dark humour creeps out. This cup was designed accidentally when Andy was helping me screenprint some Chicago Flag stars - He got some of the red overglaze on his hands, and instead of wiping it off with a towel, he grabbed a funky cup and palmed it. Ta-da! The finishing touch was the name, and our pal Donovan got it in one.
And the Murder Mug was born :)

This is our porcelain 12oz cup.
► Measurements are:
4 1/4 inches in diameter & 3 1/4 inches in height; nice and thick weighing in at a wee bit over 1 lb, when empty.

Glazed a glossy white inside and out. Very clean and crisp white! But, if you'd like it in another colour, let us know - We can show you the colours this print looks the best on.

Andy then took some red overglaze and proceeded to handle the mug with his 'bloodied' hands. Every Murder Mug will look different - I may join in on the fun and handle one myself just for sh*ts and giggles. There's even a texture to the print, so you can feel the hand print's ridges and the like!
Our name is on the bottom of the cup so you know who made it and where it's from - You know, in case you need to blame us for corrupting whoever gets this cup.

All of our ware is made from scratch in our studio in Chicago using porcelain clay, and finished using our signature glazes and overglazes (which are fired into the glaze - they're lead-free + hand screenprinted + indelible!)

► Food, dishwasher & microwave safe
