Customer Stories: Skeleton Key Keystone

Customer Stories mugs

We made a set of custom skeleton key mugs for a customer in December, and got to hear more about them when she came to the studio to pick them up. Every year, Paula's family chooses a theme for their holiday gifts to each other, and this year was "Keystone". She deconstructed the concept a bit, and chose a key design sandblasted onto stoneware mugs, which is both clever, and useful! Now, everyone on her family can feel connected when they drink from their mugs. I'm so excited that we were able to be a part of this family's sweet...

Customer Story #5: Honey Badger + Jeep = Love

Customer Stories honey badger

In June, a customer bought an orange Honey Badger mug from us, and I didn't think twice about it. About a month later, she wrote to say that she'd recently bought a Jeep Wrangler, and was wondering if I could paint the honey badger onto her spare tire cover.
