2012 Holiday Gift Guide - Julia E. Dean Handcrafted Woodland Mug - Review & Giveaway - Closed

What's your favorite beverage?  Mine is sitting down with a nice cup of hot tea, either black or a chai, with cream and sugar.  What makes it even more special is having your favorite bev in a beautiful mug.  This is where the pottery from Julia E. Dean comes into play.




Julia E. Dean has been creating quality, stylish, functional, and affordable pottery since 1998.   She uses clay to listen for and record her own story.  She is a girl that has been unearthed:

"I fell in love with clay at age 10 while watching a potter work at Colonial Williamsburg. It wasn't until college that I learned to make pots on the wheel. And I have been making pots and teaching others to do the same for 15 years.

Now I tell my students to keep all creative possibilities open and not to listen to voices that tell you, "This can only be a hobby."

Whatever lights a fire inside you, follow it!" from About Julia E. Dean

The mug that Julia picked out for me to review is her Rustic Woodland Blue Ceramic Coffee Mug.  I was delighted when I opened the box and saw this handcrafted treasure.  It is made of natural materials and has been hand rolled with leaves from deciduous trees while it was drying then stained with an oxide wash for the burnished look, and then blue glaze is added to the top, handle, and inside to complete this beautiful look.  Since each mug has been individually hand stamped with the leaf impressions, each is a totally unique work of art.  Its capacity is about 16 oz, and the mug measures about 5.5 inches high and about 3.5 inches in diameter.  It sells for only $21 a mug.  Just the perfect size for an ample serving of coffee, tea, or any other favorite drink that you like.


Now, imagine yourself on a cold winter day sitting down in front of a nice fire enjoying a sumputous cup of hot chocolate in the Julia E. Dean Woodland Mug.  This is mug is so pleasing to the eye that can be put out on display.  Take it to work with you.  What envy your fellow workers will have when you bring this out on your coffee break!


Julia E. Dean has a variety of other ceramic ware to choose from.  She crafts bowls, home decor, cream and sugar sets, teapots, serving dishes and other items in ceramic and and robin's egg blue and white porcelain.  If you want something made especially for you, just ask Julia, and she will quote you a price.  All of Julia's work comes packed in with recyclable materials.  Her pottery is safe in the microwave, dishwasher and oven. (Keep in mind that hand washing handmade pottery is the best way to protect it from chipping and breaking.)





Holiday Gift Idea!
 
 
The Rustic Woodland Blue Ceramic Mug is a perfect gift for the holidays.  Buy a pair for your parents, or for other family and friends.  They will be captivated with this wonderful gift from you.  Julia will ship any of her fine workmanship internationally.

Dean, one person is going to win a Rustic Woodland Ceramic Mug for yourself--a $21 value!  This giveaway will end on November 27, 2012, and is open to US residents and APO addresses only.  Winner will be posted here, and on the Giveaway Page after the winner has confirmed.
