Ebonised Gotland Mug
End grain turned mugs designed for your daily use, based on a viking age mug excavated in Gotland.
These guys are great for drinking from, either hot or cold. These are turned from a single piece of wood, something only possible on a pole lathe, so these are a pretty rare item out in the world.
I would suggest that you avoid using these for anything with a high alcohol content ( such as wine or spirits) as this poses a cracking risk. If you want one for wine or spirits, get in touch and I can make one with a beeswax finish which is great for alcohol (but not for hot liquid)
While i test these with boiling water before selling them, you use them in this way at your own risk. Severe thermal shock can cause splitting.
