Story Behind the Art:
Mara, an accomplished painter, sculptor and ceramicist, studied engraving with the famous artist Alfredo Zalce, who painted many portraits of his lovely artist protege. After studying art in London, she began working with high-temperature ceramics and created wonderfully unique glazes for her pieces. She then went on to study with the Italian ceramist, Bruno Terese, in Italy. Mara has had numerous expositions of her original pieces in Europe, the United States and Mexico. Sadly, after a long illness, Mara passed away in November 2007. Since Ceramica Mara has always been an extended family operation, production of her fine works has continued. Mara's husband, children and loyal apprentices have consistently carried out day to day production.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The mugs are very sturdy.Read More
These cups perform quite well. They are heavy, retain heat well, are beautiful and make a nice addition to my home.Read More
I am a semi-collector of things hummingbird so naturally I was attracted to these mugs. They are pretty but quite different than expected. First of all, they are not as bright as pictured. They have dull muted colors. That's ok, I can live with that, but the weight makes them very cumbersome to drink out of (at least to me). I am sure there are lots of folks who will like their "substantial" feel but it's not for me. I'm thinking maybe they'll be fun to drink soup out of in the winter in front of a roaring fire, but for now they will probably just sadly decorate my kitchen counter.Read More
Perhaps my fault, but I thought these would not be so huge. They have a nice, rustic design (and hummingbirds, which I didn't think of as rustic) that many will like. But they are so huge and I am not sure who to give them to for Christmas. They were for a small-handed woman who loves hot tea. So if you are looking for soup bowls with handles, I recommend these. Or, perhaps for a person with gigantic hands for tea or coffee mugs.Read More

I ordered three pairs of these mugs and absolutely LOVE them! They are the best mugs I've ever owned. First, they are "substantial." They are solid and heavy and feel great in your hand. From an aesthetic standpoint, I think they're beautifully done. Far and way my favorite mugs ever!Read More
