This mug is so cute to use when you are at home, in the office, or running around. There are different types of mugs to choose from...travel mugs with a lid and more! (I can send you pictures of your choice.) This mug is made out of bisque that has been fired. I use unleaded glazes that are all food safe; however I do not suggest putting this is the microwave or dishwasher (over time it could crack or the paint may chip off if you microwave or put it in the dishwasher).
