White Kintsugi-Inspired Mug

Special Price $19.99 Regular Price $39.00
Our Portland, Oregon artisan was inspired by the Japanese art of ''kintsugi'' when handcrafting this unique white mug. ''Kintsugi,'' or repairing broken objects with gold, makes them stronger and even more valuable than before. This mug was hand-thrown to appear as if it had been shattered, and the ''repair'' details are real gold, painted just thinly enough so that they won't spark in the microwave. Hand wash, microwave safe. Each mug measures approximately 4.25 inches tall and holds 10 ounces. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
