8oz Short Mug

Regular price $35.00

Only 8 items in stock!

New for Spring 2023: Now available in Matte White!

These mugs were modeled after a beloved tin camping mug with a compact, sturdy shape. A good mug has the right amount of leverage when sipping and sets down solidly on the table or workbench. The Short Mug has both of these qualities as well as a lower center of gravity, which makes it harder to knock over. Learn more about this mug's origin.

Is your dinnerware dishwasher & microwave safe?

Yes, our plates are designed for the rigors of restaurant kitchens and will be safe in your dishwasher & microwave. For cleaning we recommend using detergents that are gentle and environmentally friendly such as Seventh Generation.

How do I clean cutlery marks off the plates?

Any matte glaze can show cutlery marking over time. This is a factor of the glaze being stronger than the flatware. Any marking is only temporary and do not worry, it is not harming the glaze. To remove these marks, we recommend scrubbing with a gentle abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keeper’s friend.

Is your dinnerware oven safe?

Yes, our plates are also safe in your oven up to 400°F but they are not bakeware or intended for routine use in the oven. Always be careful to prevent subjecting them to thermal shock (going from extreme cold to extreme hot or visa versa). Thermal shock can break or damage porcelain pottery.

Are your products durable?

Our work is used daily in over 175 restaurants around the world. Fast paced restaurants put our plates through rigors that they’ll never experience in your home. You can use our plates just like you’re accustomed to and when taken care of and stored properly, our wares will last a lifetime (or a few!).

How do Haand plates stack?

Our plates are designed to stack in your cupboard. We do not recommend stacking plates more than 12" high.

The perfect cup—and I don’t say that lightly

Finding a durable, beautifully made 8oz cup for tea is like finding a needle in a haystack. I searched for MONTHS for a mug that would make the perfect cup of tea morning after morning, and this is far and away the winner! It keeps my tea hot until the last sip, and the 8oz capacity meets my needs precisely. I love how thoughtfully handmade it is, and packaged with care, too. After buying my first, and using it, I immediately bought two more and am now eyeing up more plates and bowls from Haand!

Lovely little coffee cup.

For me, morning coffee is ritual.. something I relish much for the process than the caffeine. The 8oz short mug is perfect for me, for both a pour over and a cappuccino. It’s weighty without being heavy. It's easy to hold by its handle, the other side, or the bottom. The lip is substantial but not thick. The feeling of the porcelain is smooth but manages not to be slick. So drinking from this cup - or any Haand cup - is an experience to delight in. An experience worthy of ritual.. those little intentional moments that make life lovely.

Love my matte grey dinnerware

I have two complete sets of dinnerware, for both of my homes. I love the quality, and the look of the dinnerware. I am using the ripple collection. I highly recommend it it’s beautiful, functional and durable. The customer service is the best

I am in love with my mugs, bowls, plates and platters! This pottery is not only lovely, it also has the nicest, smoothest feel in your hands. The shapes are slightly distorted and quirky, but this is NOT a negative. Just a reminder that every piece is hand made by a real person, not stamped in a machine. I'm excited to continue adding to my collection!
