Crystal ceramic mugs: A unique gift idea for Xmas

ceramic mug with crystal

Collin Lynch, a well-established artist at Essarai Ceramics, is an artist who focuses on crafting custom ceramic mugs, bowls, and plates that he normally clusters with dazzling crystals once they are complete. Lynch prefers to adorn his creations in 3D rather than the normal 2D patterning or illustration as he rides the fine line between sculpture and practical objects. He makes use of conventional dishware silhouettes and elevates them with glazed geometric forms protrude from them. When you hold his ceramic items especially in your mugs, it feels as though you are holding a collection of colorful luminous crystals instead of something that is made for drinking or eating.

Here’s one of the ceramic mug. I bet you haven’t seen one of these before:


I thought this would make an excellent Christmas present, that’s if the person you are buying the gift for has a thing for ceramic objects.

Most of the stock in Essarai Ceramics consists of handcrafted mugs. The mugs are available in various colors and each piece comes with either platinum or gold handles with a neutral cup that has been glazed in white or gray. The palette sets the theme perfectly for the vibrant layered crystals that look as though they burst out from the side of the mugs and extend from its base to the lip. The end result gives a much more satisfying experience when taking a drink from the mug and the brilliant colors that Lynch features in each of the mugs are sure to brighten up your day.

Why Should You Buy a Ceramic Mug?

The use of plastic or paper mugs is a bad habit that people should be rid of. It is bad for the environment as they can’t be reused thereby leading to these mugs or cups being disposed of everywhere. If you have ever taken your coffee using disposable coffee mugs, you’ll find that after 2 or 3 uses, your coffee will end up tasting like your disposable mug/cup. Plastic mugs also degrade similarly as many kinds of plastic end up leeching chemicals into the liquids they hold after being reused severally. Even if at times it may not be bad for your health, it will still affect the taste of your coffee negatively. Metal coffee mugs also suffer the same problem as once the coating on the metal begins to wear off after several uses, the coffee or drink you are taking will likely develop a musty and metallic taste. Therefore, the best option would be to get a ceramic mug.

Ceramic is an inorganic and non-metallic material that hardly reacts to anything it comes into contact with. This makes it perfect for people who like to take coffee with their breakfast. They are also easily cleaned and reusable and can pretty much last forever if they are handled with care. They also maintain the taste of coffee as opposed to paper or plastic mugs. Some research has also found out that a good coffee mug tends to enhance the creative process for software developers and writers as the appearance of the mug encourages positivity subconsciously.

The Crystal mugs, bowls, and plates are available for purchase from the Essarai Ceramics Etsy Shop and they can be a very special gift to anyone close to you. It may not seem like much at first, but once they are used for some time, their benefits start to become apparent, and the user is more appreciative of the material. Although there are various types to choose from the selection available at Essarai Ceramics, there is the option of placing a custom order for those who have a more accurate design in mind.
