Product Info

A simple, stylish large mug designed by master ceramicist Keith Brymer Jones. Exquisitely crafted from super white porcelain and hand-stamped with the French words ‘le grand amour!’. The retro typewriter font contrasts beautifully with the contemporary design to create a sense of understated sophistication. This 500Ml designer mug is hard-wearing and dishwasher and microwave safe.

Made with love, and a perfect gift for your one true love. This large white ceramic mug is by the designer Keith Brymer Jones and part of his Word Range of designer mugs & cups. The French words ‘le grand amour!’ have been hand-stamped in a retro typewriter font, which adds a hint of vintage style to its modern design.

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.

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.
