This ~18oz Mug will take your zen to a whole new level. There's nothing like wrapping your hands around an American made hand-crafted mug, and our signature Whale Tail mug is one of the best.

A perfect reminder of Maine and the beauty that surrounds us, this mug is also incredibly functional and comfortable. Your morning routine will never be the same.

  • Holds Approximately 18oz
  • ~ 4.75”H x 5.5”W (including handle)
  • Made of High Quality & Durable Porcelain
  • Microwave & Dishwasher Safe (use gentle detergent)
  • Made in Maine, USA
  • Due to the natural product, color tone and texture may vary
  • Family owned & locally run

All of our pieces are touched by hands many many times throughout their creation, so no two pieces will ever be alike. The images shown are the best representations of the glaze & form.

The Imperfections of Pottery Crystal Development
Our crystalline glazes blossom randomly on the pottery’s surface like frost on a window. No two pieces will turn out the same. While the macrocrystalline development on glazes such as Winter Storm, Honey Green & Bahama Blue is very unpredictable, we always do our best to put together pottery with a harmony of tone & crystals per customer request.

Crazing
A common cause is a mismatch between the thermal expansions of a glaze to that of the body on which it is held. Think glaze fit! Because our glaze is very thick and our pieces shrink approximately 20% during firing, crazing often results. Edgecomb Pottery pieces most often exhibit crazing in Seabreeze & Seaglass. It is not considered either cracked or flawed and in fact, can add texture and color to the piece. Crazing will not affect the integrity of our pottery.

Beauty Marks
There are little bits of glaze floating within a kiln that randomly turn up as specks of color on a pot. You just never know what you're going to get!

Great mug. Awesome customer service.

The whale tale mug is as beautiful as it is comfortable to hold. I will put this on my birthday, Christmas and mothers day wish lists until I have six.

I had the need to speak with customer service over a slight manufacturing defect. Within hours my replacement was on its way. It is perfect.
Customer service is outstanding.

My Go-To Mug

I've slowly replaced most coffee mugs with the whale tail mugs. It is my go-to for coffee and hot chocolate and always reminds me of Maine when I am not there. The tail design on the handle is unique and so cleverly built into the style of the mug.

Truly one of my favorite pieces from Edgecomb.

  Awesome mug!!!

This mug is not only incredibly beautiful, it's also a work of art.  The reason it feels so good is because of the flat portion of the whales tail where it is joined at the top of the cup. It is the perfect place to rest your thumb when you drink from it. It's not only comfortable but it adds fluid stability when your drinking from it.

 We are getting rid of our mugs and replacing them with these because they are the best.

Also, they have the best sales people that are very responsive in finding what you want. I would highly recommend this company.

Outstanding!

We love using these mugs. Great aesthetic & size. Rather than limit our mugs to a single pattern, we have purchased 12 mugs in 4 different patterns.
