Calculating time remaining

This is a fully customizable mug pre-order, with a special prize to help finance my new studio. For this higher price you get to custumize it fully, (almost) no limitations. 

  • You can choose the color of the body of the mug, no limitations except it has to be marbled and it cannot be a dark color (for checkered, you can order the higher level listing) 
  • You can choose the colors of the patterns, no limitations. Can be dark, like chocolate, but not black. 
  • You can choose the decoration elements; no limitations. It can also be something I never did before like bye example a cupid, cherries, birds, snake... 
  • Any size of mug. If you choose a small mug it comes with a saucer and a spoon. 
  • You can ask me to engrave a name or a short message
  • Handles can have decorations, cut outs, but cannot be a different shape. You can also ask me to have no handle. 

*I reserve myself the possibility to decline if it's something I don't feel capable to do. 

Example order: I want an all white mug, size tall, with cupids + bows and heart pattern, and i want a heart cut out in the handle. *I reserve myself some creative liberties, I will not make an exact copy of a piece I already made, all my pieces are unique, so will be yours. 

Preorders politics: This is a non-refundable purchase. If you change your mind and don't want the mug I made for you, or prefer to get something else I have in stock, I will make you a equivalent value gift card that you can use anytime now or in the future. If I fail to deliver the mug, (like by example I have an accident and it breaks, I will refund you.) Production is 6 to 8 weeks. 

Sueños de quinceañeras collection is inspired by vintage cake designs. The pieces are made with marbled colored clay to make the body of the piece, and whipped colored clay in a pastry bag to make the decorations. In some pieces there are embedded elements like clay seashells, flamingos, and flowers, real gold  and 100% authentic natural birth stones. Made by Marina Lespérance Lopez in Montréal, Canada.

Materials 
Mid-range porcelain, ceramic pigments, shiny semi-transparent milky glaze and real gold.

Approximate dimensions 

  • Your choice, refer to sold out items for dimensions examples

Maintenance 
Hand wash gently without abrasive to keep the gold shiny longer. My pieces do not go in the microwave. Handmade ceramics are fragile by nature, they should be treated with the same care as your fanciest wine glasses. 

Disclaimer 
The dimensions given are approximate and can vary slightly. Each object is hand builded without the use of a potter wheel, and are never perfectly symmetrical. My pieces are all one of a kind functional artworks, and I favor artistic complexity over technical perfection. I produce the imagery on my pieces with multiple successive layers of colored porcelain, stoneware and minerals, so it is normal to perceive textures, small holes or separations between colors, or micro cracks in the frosting. Minimal flaws are to be expected. If there are more significant flaws that affect the function, the piece will be classified as ‘’seconds’’ and will be 50% off. If the flaw affects the beauty of the piece it will be marked as second and be 20% or 30% off. Please look at the images carefully as the imperfections are not hidden.
