50% Cornish Clay from St Agnes 50% Ball Clay from Devon

Glazed clay mug. Designed and made in Cornwall by the world-famous Leach Pottery.

Our exclusive 'Leach for Seasalt' collection celebrates our joint love for simple, beautiful style and true craftsmanship.

Our pots and mugs are made using locally sourced clay from St Agnes in Cornwall and hand thrown in the Leach workshop.

This type of pottery is known as stoneware. It’s hardwearing, so if you treat it with care it should last a lifetime.

The full blue glaze colourway is finished with a dolomite glaze, which was used at the Leach Pottery in the 1950s.

The brushed glaze colourway has an ash glaze. As a natural ingredient, the ash used in the glaze can vary, so the colour of the glaze may be quite different from one mug to another; each mug is unique.

This product is handmade so sizes may vary slightly.

Unfortunately we are unable to deliver this product internationally.

Gorgeous but...

I bought 2 of these mugs, after I couldn't take it any more in the sale. I had wanted to try them for ages. The full glaze looks exactly as pictured, the other mug doesn't have a white lip, but is mainly a wood nymph greeny/brown colour except for the brushed glaze part. It is still lovely, and both are gorgeous to look at, especially with their bumpy even exterior. I have only used the full glaze so far, and the handle is perfect to hold, secure and nicely sized. It makes me want to drink.
Capacity wise it's around 400ml or more, so perfect for those who bought the older seasalt coffee cups but thought they were too small. Try this for size.

BUT, after less than a week of use, the base on the inside is crazed all over - it has been looked after like a precious heirloom, handwashed with care, no dishwasher and certainly no microwave. So why? Is this normal for these mugs? Does it mean the base will crack? :( And I SO love it...

Perfect pottery!

This mug is stunning, but don't you just love all things St Ives!! Also love the idea of the Seasalt Bursary scheme, so important to preserve Cornish cultural heritage.

Looked at these online for months then ordered two, one with brushed glaze and one plain white. The brushed glaze pattern wasn't at all how it looks in the photo online and was unattractive. The plain white one wasn't as good in real life either. Returned them both and got a refund.

Dear Jo,
Thank you for reviewing the Leach mugs. Each mug is handmade and hand glazed so they’re all a little different. If you’d like to choose your own, many of our stores stock them so if there’s a Seasalt store near to you, do pop in.
Best wishes,

What a mug....

Just love this mug, looks good, feels the right weight and great to support local craft hand crafted products.

Disappointed twice

I ordered two mugs of differing finish. The plain mug was perfect, however the brushed glaze mug arrived with crazed glaze and an unsightly brown blob on the outside. Sent pictures and SEASALT agreed to send a replacement. I've just opened the parcel and again the mug is crazed all over. Am very disappointed as these mugs are a gift. Will return asking for replacement in a different finish.

Gorgeous mugs - we got one each of two different designs and I can't figure out which I like more!

There is a very good 'feel' to these mugs. They are hard wearing, well made yet have a fine rim which is pleasant to drink from. Being stoneware they also keep tea and coffee hot for a long time. The subtle glazes are lovely and the mug has been in constant use since I bought it.
