Mug | Squid Ink
The mug with Kat Pino's refined signature handle in Squid Ink; an ink-like splatter on a silky snowflake white body. No pattern is alike, making every piece unique in its appearance. A cozy mug that sits perfectly in your hand.
Approx. 2.75" wide x 4" tall (7.25 cm x 10.5 cm)
Holds approx. 12 oz (350 ml)
Please note: although the iron oxide in the splatters is fully melted with the protective glaze, it's best to remain cautious and avoid putting items from the Squid Ink collection in the microwave.
All products are handmade and are subject to minor ‘imperfections’ and variations in finish and sizing. These variations are a characteristic of all handmade products and are not considered flaws or defects.
All sizes mentioned on the site are approximate. Different types of clays have different shrinkage rates. Therefore, variations in size can occur (ie. the Ember and Squid Ink mug).
All items are glazed with foodsafe and lead-free glazes.
Most items are dishwasher safe. However, for longevity I strongly recommend to hand wash all items.
I strongly advise to not put items from the Squid Ink collection in the microwave. Although the iron oxide in the splatters is fully melted with the protective glaze, it's best to remain cautious.
I do not recommend using my dinnerware in an oven. However, you could place them in the oven for a very short time at low temperatures to keep warm (max. 175 Fahrenheit / 80 Celsius).
Pottery will crack if transferred straight from the fridge or freezer to a hot oven or microwave. To avoid thermal shock, it's recommended to let the pieces change in temperature gradually.
Spills from strong coloured foods (like turmeric, carrot, beetroot, etc.) should be cleaned from unglazed surfaces right away.
It's common for marks, discolouration and crackles to appear in handmade ceramics (especially in matte and satin finishes, and if you leave coffee or tea in a mug for a period of time). "Barkeepers friend" can help remove cutlery marks.
