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 am a fan of Mara mugs, and I was very much looking forward to receiving these however, when they arrived they were a big disappointment. First, the coloring was not nearly as bright as the picture and in reality, the background is a darker, dull and muddy greenish color (NOT the bluish color shown), and the roses are more pink than red. Second, they ARE NOT 16oz!! They hold 20oz when filled to the very brim. I find this to be true of all of the Mara mugs that I have purchased recently and while for many people this would be a plus, I am specifically looking for 16oz - 17oz mugs. To add insult to injury, I wasn't very keen on this design (as compared to some of the other Mara designs), but I bought it ONLY because another reviewer said that her mugs held 16oz when filled to the brim, which is just what I want. As I said, I am a fan of Mara mugs, but I have purchased three separate designs now and they ALL hold significantly more than 16oz (between 19 and 20oz). They are nice, heavy mugs and the stoneware keeps my tea warm all the way to the bottom and I like this, but I have a lot of mugs this size already and am specifically looking for the 16oz size that they are claimed to be in the TITLE! Another issue I have found with these mugs is that they incur "spoon marks" on the inside bottom and sides VERY quickly and easily. This is not such a hardship considering that the inside of the mug is so dark, however , it IS visible and catches your eye when you look inside the mug. For the price (which in my opinion, is kind of high), this is not so nice and when added to the other issues, made my decision to return these mugs an easy one. I still like my other Mara mugs very much, but until and unless the size issue is resolved, I will not be buying any more of them.Read More
I have been looking for 16-ounce or bigger mugs for quite some time and have gone through several that just weren't quite right. These Mara stoneware mugs are exactly what I wanted. They are comfortable to hold and to drink from. 16-ounces fills them to the brim, almost overflowing, but not quite. Each mug is individually etched on the bottom, a nice, personal touch from the artist who painted them. I expect that this means there could be some minor variation in color and pattern, although the two mugs I received have no noticeable differences between them other than the signatures. My two mugs don't look quite as bright green as the mugs in the online photo. They seem solid, not likely to chip or crack with ordinary use. I've put them in the dishwasher many times now without problems. They do have a somewhat large diameter, so they may be too big for smaller coasters. My only "complaint" is that the inside is quite dark, making it a bit of a challenge to see the level of the coffee while pouring. This isn't a serious enough concern to warrant anything less than an excellent review. I highly recommend these mugs.Read More
Questions & Answers
I have 2 of Mara's mugs that are used for coffee. Stays warm to the last drop; big enough that I don't have to refill. With two more, I'll have 4 to use as soup mugs.
