Seahorse Mugs by Karrita Renzelmann. Custom handmade in America Beauties.

I spotted these large and lovely seahorse mugs in Karrita Renzelmann's Etsy shop My Mother's Garden.

 She also has starfish cups.

I wrote asking if she could make the seahorse cups 
where just the seahorse would have a light blue wash
and the rest of the cup in the lightest white she could do.
I admit to a bit of sticker shock at first. 
Me, that also crafts handmade items for sale.

Wait a minute; handmade custom colored cups just for me.
I thought about the process which is long.
Shaping the clay.
The clay has to dry slowly, be fired, fired again.
Firing up a kiln alone is small fortune

Handmade in America!

Original handmade custom works of art.
Something we can enjoy each morning.

My photos do not do them justice.
The seahorse has more blue and the white is lighter.
These are tall heavy cups.
Karrita even made them in his and hers; how sweet!
One holds 16 ounces and the other 14 ounces.

When I opened the box they were a sight to behold 
and well worth every penny and the three week wait.

Now I see Karrita came out with Mermaid cups.
I like nice looking mermaids and may have to get those too.

Go on treat yourself.

Love the idea of bringing out the blue in the seahorses, and the bigger sizes. I have a plain white seahorse cup that I like, but these are really striking.

The mugs are beautiful - and special because they were exactly what you wanted. I absolutely love seahorses - did you know they mate for life -and it's so sweet - every day they wind their tails together like a little hug. I just think they are so sweet.
Have a pretty day!
