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.

I have bought three sets of these mugs. One as a wedding gift and the other 2 for my personal use. These mugs hold a generous cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea. Now for the artistic side of the mug. They are unique and I have gotten several 'where did you get these' from guests, friends, and family. They are a delight to show and the styles available within the line are fun and something for everyone. I would highly recommend these to anyone, who wants more than the tea cup coffee available in most dinner ware sets!!!Read More
