Muertos Doggie Mugs
The Muertos Doggie hand painted character is a San Miguel Trading signature design. Inspired by our love for all animals especially Dogs and our infatuation with Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). A sacred and very old holiday that is celebrated throughout Mexico. Day of the Dead may appear to be a morbid holiday about death, but nothing could be further from the truth. Day of the Dead is about celebrating the deceased entire life. Enjoy your preferred beverage in this unique handmade ceramic mug while paying homage to your furry companion who may be gone but never forgotten!
The artisans of our Muertos Dog Ceramic Mugs hand-mold and uniquely paint each and every one of our vessels to give each canister its lively individuality. They use hand-thrown ceramic and fire it up in a kiln with a durable protective glaze. They are safe to hold all beverages, and dishwasher safe. Our ceramic mugs hold 8 oz of liquid. These artisan crafted mugs are available in three different designs and multiple colors.
San Miguel Original for Dia de Los Muertos
We understand the importance and tradition of Dia de Los Muertos for honoring family who have passed on to the other side. Pets are considered family to some, and it is heartbreaking to say goodbye. We created these mugs with a Dia de Los Muertos style dog so you can honor your furry companion(s) while enjoying a warm beverage one not just on Day of the Dead but everyday.
Dia de Los Muertos is a multiple day Mexican tradition to honor and remember those who have passed on. Family members bring their deceased loved one all of their favorite foods and decorate their altars with fresh flowers and handmade colorful decorations.
Our artisans are influenced by the lively colors of Dia de los Muertos when making our ceramic hand-painted mugs. Each piece may vary slightly and is fair trade artisan crafted using a two-bake ceramic firing process. The canisters are first baked in a high-fire kiln at 1200-1500 degrees Fahrenheit. The 2nd bake is done at the same heat but will have a protective glaze finish for a true shine of all the colors.
