Canvas Mug – Dark Topaz Blue
TIMELESS DESIGN • HANDCRAFTED
WHY WE LOVE IT
Bring a bit of luxury to your morning coffee or tea with this beautiful round dark topaz blue mug. With its subtle curves, streamlined design and nature-inspired tones, this handcrafted mug is simple and stunning. Using unique mottled glazes that are variegated, they have character with speckles, runs and splashes.
Each piece is crafted by the hands of skilled makers, with the reactive glaze surface being created when two colours are layered in a double-dipping process. The reaction varies from piece to piece, depending on the glaze technician and the location on the kiln during firing. The result is bespoke pieces making each creation truly unique and special.
Organic and simple, this timeless quality piece will last a lifetime.
*Please note: The process of 'handmade' means product sizes and colours will vary between pieces.

Still Making Since 1945
From humble beginnings in a tin shed on the outskirts of Gembrook, Robert Gordon Australia now operates as Australia's largest production pottery.
A lot has changed since 1945 when Robert's mum and dad would once turn plates, pots and bowls on their wheel. These days much is still handmade, it's just the techniques have changed to cater for large runs. A thrower's wheel, once a main tool for making, has now been replaced with a ram press, plate spinning machines or slip casting moulds. Yet even with all these advances, the process is touched by many hands.
On average the production of a single plate will pass through the hands of at least 12 skilled workers.
From initial sculpting by their Italian born mould maker, to the production of bisque, fettling, glazing and kiln firing, it is a fully dedicated team process.
What makes Robert Gordon Australia unique has been the ability to operate as a fully functioning pottery over the past 75 years, spanning three generations and employing over 40 people. A testament to Australian pottery. A testament to a family run business and an age-old craft.
Robert Gordon has gone from supplying wares to Sunday tourists at the St Kilda markets, to providing some of the world’s most reputable retailers and restaurants with quality ceramics. The early years spent as a studio pottery means they still place enormous importance on the craft of pottery.
Their product is built to last a lifetime. Forever to be enjoyed and adored.
Amazing quality. Beautiful to look at and to drink from.
I already knew that we loved these mugs, however I hadn’t seen them in these colours before. They were a wedding anniversary gift to ourselves and we couldn’t be happier. Amazing quality and Australian made. Customer service from Coco & Henry was superb. Can’t recommend highly enough.
I bought 2 mugs from them. And OMG I had a great online shopping experience. I had been looking for like this mug that same colour & microwave safe since I broken similar one in NZ. There were some issue about currier due to covid 19. Despite this, their response is quick and so helpful. I will buy another one if I broken again. 100 % recommend!
