Herdwick Sheep Mug - illustrated 11oz mug, designed and made in the Lake District

from 15.00

The Herdwick sheep is the native breed of the Lake District and Cumbria and has a very distinctive smiley face, despite living on wild windswept fells in almost constantly soggy conditions. Herdwicks are unusual in that they are “hefted” which means they have a particular connection to their own “heaf” or fell and pass on this knowledge from one generation to the next - almost never sharing their excellent navigation skills with lost ramblers and fellwalkers.

These are my new style mugs for 2019 featuring artwork from my original drawings and watercolour illustrations. Each mug comes in a printed, recycled card, gift box and UK second class postage is included. These mugs are a little bit bigger than the plain white ones and I love the classic blue and white highlights.

*11oz, white stoneware with a dark blue handle and rim.

*Hand printed in small quantities, here in my studio, using a heat press and printed sublimation papers. (Dye Sublimation printing uses organic colour dyes which gives a brilliant gloss appearance. It is also more environmentally friendly, avoiding the use of substances such a lead and cadmium.)

*Dishwasher safe.
