Mugs-Jill Tortorella

  • Liven up your morning coffee or tea with one of these beauties! Handmade by Illinois ceramicist Jill Tortorella, each of these unique mugs is beautifully finished with intricate glazed detail for a cozy, rustic look. In order to ensure a long life, simply warm the mug with tap water before adding boiling water to avoid temperature shock. All are microwave, oven and dishwasher safe. All mugs are approximately 4.75"x3.25"x4" but will vary slightly due to handmade nature

  • Jill creates vessels to use as canvases, which become three dimensional paintings. After an initial firing, bold all over patterns are painted on with bright glaze colors in many layers in the final firing gives life to her utilitarian pieces and makes them durable, everlasting works of art.

    Our stoneware pottery is durable, versatile and safe to use, and it is ovenware, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe. Our clay and glazes contain no harmful materials. For baking we suggest warming our pieces in the oven, rather than placing it in a preheated oven. Mugs and teapots should be rinsed with hot tap water before pouring in boiling water. These precautions will eliminate the drastic temperature changes that sometimes cause damage to a piece of stoneware.
