Like all the designer tableware in the Keith Brymer Jones Word Range, this mug has been thoughtfully crafted to be stylish, practical, dishwasher & microwave safe.

This large white 500Ml capacity ceramic mug is a good size for those who like a more substantial cup of tea or coffee. Appropriately, the words ‘go large’ have been hand-embossed onto the mug in a retro typewriter font.

Porcelain has a natural translucent quality. The traditional design and manufacturing process of porcelain cups made them thin and fairly fragile, but Keith Brymer Jones found a way to make them much more hard-wearing while retaining the aesthetic qualities of the material. Part of his unique technical process includes firing the porcelain mugs at a higher temperature to create a sturdy but lightweight ceramic mug that is tough enough to go through the dishwasher or microwave in everyday use.

The unusual shape of the Bucket Mug is one of its most recognisable features and was inspired by an old bucket in Keith’s Whitstable pottery studio. The elegant taper is pleasing to the eye but a closer look reveals that it finishes with an unusually thin lip for a mug. This is a reference to the fine porcelain cups of ancient China and it allows the tea or coffee to glide more gently and naturally onto the tongue. Keith’s attention to detail in the design of the Bucket Mug allows for a more relaxed, sit and sip style of tea or coffee drinking.

The technical achievement creates a fine porcelain mug that sits comfortably in the hand and is a pleasure to drink from, but what makes these designer mugs so unique are the words that are gently hand-pressed into the wet porcelain. Keith Brymer Jones calls this retro style his Word Range.

Keith’s love of vintage style inspired his choice of the quirky retro typewriter font and his cheeky humour has led to a range of the cheekiest, rudest and funniest designer mugs we’ve ever seen.

Full of technical skill, practicality and personality, the Keith Brymer Jones Bucket Mugs are deeply satisfying to own and make a wonderful, truly unusual gift.
