Everybody has coffee mugs because they are a necessity in our kitchens. We need mugs to drink our coffee, tea and hot cocoa. We also need them for our soup and ice cream. Some mugs go with our dish set other mugs coordinate with our kitchen décor. Then there are seasonal mugs that compliment our decorations. Like I said there are a variety of mug styles. But there are not too many that are artistic.
Artistic are the unique mugs, some are painted by hand and others are created from uploading a photograph from a print on demand online store and some are designed from graphic illustrations.
I prefer to have an eclectic collection of artistic mugs because in a sense when you hand your friend a mug like this they will mention the artwork and want to learn more. This is a way to break the ice and get others talking . So mugs that are artistic are good for parties when everyone is standing around staring into space. They also show off that you enjoy art.
If you re like me and enjoy a mug that was created by a designer then here are a few of my favorites.
