How We Made Your Mug!

Glorious Geekdom Pottery
Each piece of our pottery is made 100% by hand, by us! 
Mugs, bowls, teapots and more, are made on the potters wheel
here in our Shenandoah Valley Virginia studio from a lump of
raw clay!

Our pieces are then stamped, carved, lettered, trimmed,
handled and/or altered before being kiln fired to just a bit
under 1900°F.
HOT HOT HOT!!
The next step is the glazing process~
We hand mix our own glazes here in the studio, and use them
along with a handful of super fun colorful underglazes,
(pigmented clay) to create the designs you see on all of our
fandom goodies :)
 
Each pot then goes back into the kiln for a 2nd firing (over 2200°F) which sets the glaze and matures the clay, making it sturdy and functional!
While a tiny handful of our highly customized pieces might be just for show, about 99% of our work is intended for every day use.
•All of our mugs are MICROWAVE & DISHWASHER friendly!
•All of our glazes are 100% lead free and appropriate finishes for food, drink, cooking and storage.
