+ $ shipping surcharge
Comfort can be hand-held.
Made-to-order. Ships out in 10 business days.
For this ceramic mug, which matches our first-ever Food52 dinnerware line, we weren’t going to settle for ordinary. Instead, we asked Jono Pandolfi—star ceramicist for chefs at eateries like Eleven Madison Park, the NoMad Hotel, Tosca, and Gramercy Tavern—to design a line that would only be available at Food52.
His excitement for the project carried through to the results; we couldn’t happier about these modern mugs, characterized by elegant handles and an unfinished exterior. Cast in creamy tan clay, every mug is made entirely by hand from scratch and features interior glazing—gleaming, white, and food-safe. It’s the perfect marriage of rugged craftsmanship and elegance, made for turning your everyday meals to something restaurant-worthy.
Please note this item is subject to a 10% restocking fee for returns.
