January 2019 Miniature of the Month: Mini Carved Mug with Handle

This little mug is sure to bring a smile to your face. It's little, handcrafted, and full of character. It's glazed in a combination of denim blue and turquoise, two of my most popular glaze colors. It holds 1.5 oz of liquid, making it the perfect shot glass. Add it to your miniature collection, use it to hold toothpicks, bobby pins, or as a sauce cup, or anything else you can dream up.

Welcome to the Riverlane Studios MINIATURE OF THE MONTH! Customers ask me to make specialty miniatures all the time – little mugs with handles, tiny seasonal items, little bitty pitchers, teapots, etc. Well, now is your chance to get your hands on some of these specialty miniatures! Each month, I will make a small batch of specialty miniatures, which will only be available while supplies last. Watch for a new mini each month and pick your favorites, or collect them all! Each new miniature will be unique, priced individually, and more special than the grab bag miniatures offered in a separate listing.

Coming in February 2019: Miniature red heart-shaped bowls.

These miniature pots vary in size from 1 to 3” tall/wide.

Riverlane Studios small-batch and bespoke pottery is handcrafted in my home studio in Columbus, Ohio. All wares are functional and food safe, as well as safe for use in the oven, microwave and dishwasher (unless otherwise noted in the listing). They’re all wheel-thrown or hand-built from stoneware ceramic clay and fired (twice) in an electric kiln.

Stoneware pottery is durable and versatile, but sensitive to sudden changes in temperature and should never be used on the stovetop. For more information about the use and care of stoneware ceramics/pottery, please contact Michelle (artist/potter/owner) at riverlanestudios [!at] or visit

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom ceramic orders take 2-6 weeks to complete and are subject to an additional fee. Additional processing time may be required if materials must be designed or ordered from a third party. Send me a message to inquire about current processing time, as it varies depending on season, current workload and type of item requested.

Payment is required before work can begin the project. Delay in payment may cause a delay in delivery time.

Custom orders are not returnable. If you receive your item damaged, or not as expected, please contact Riverlane Studios. I'll do my best to correct or replace the item, or make it right.

Wholesale availability

Please contact us with requests for wholesale items. Pricing and availability is negotiable. Extra processing time may be required.

Sizing details

Items are photographed in the maker's hands or with a ruler to show actual size. Measurements are also detailed in the description of the product, including volume in fluid ounces for all drink ware.

If you have specific questions about the size of an item, please send us a message.

Care instructions

All ceramic drink and dinner wares are oven, microwave and dishwasher safe (unless otherwise noted in the description).

Personalization on ceramic holiday ornaments is scratch and abrasion resistant, but should not be soaked, intentionally scraped/scratched or washed in the dishwasher, as this personalization is often added after the ware is fired.

Never use ceramic wares (including teapots, casserole dishes, etc.) on a stovetop. Care and use instructions are included with teapots and cook/bakeware items. For more complete care instructions, visit http://riverlanestudios/about/use-care
