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.

I purchased one of these mugs in Mexico over 10 years ago. I loved that mug but never thought about looking for similar mugs on the web until I came across them on Overstock. I love that I have more than 1 of these mugs. They are heavy and have a sizable handle for people with big hands.
