How It's Made

Made from real "lead free" terra-cotta that is thrown and sculpted by hand and kiln fired with protective glaze. Every mug is twice baked in a high-fire kiln at 1200* - 1500*F the 2nd bake is done in with protective glaze finish. This traditional terra-cotta and kiln firing method will hold the temperature of your hot beverage longer than normal mugs crafted from porcelain. Lead free paint and ceramic, safe to hold liquid or food. Handmade by skilled fair-trade artisans. Safe for microwave, dishwasher safe(top shelf preferred), oven safe. Hand-thrown ceramic and high fire glaze is very durable and will not erode or fade, nor easily scratch.

Artisan Story
A Folk-Art hero From Mexico.

The "Vintage Catrina" artwork hand-painted on each mug is adapted from José Guadalupe Posada (the father of the Catrina). ”La Calavera Catrina" was originally sketched in 1888 by one of Mexico’s first & most infamous satirical cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada.

Born in a small town located in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico on February 2, 1852. As a boy Posada was educated by his older brother. Cirilo taught his younger brother how to read, write, and draw. This small but significant bit of education would prove to be a critical asset to Posada as he matured to become a Mexican political printmaker and engraver. Posada’s work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and skeletons to make political and cultural critiques.

    Great customer service!

    I purchased a Catrina mug and when I unpacked it (which was very very well packed) it sadly had a crack you could feel. I filled with water to see if it was just cosmetic but, it was not. I called Zenwaro and spoke with Clayton and he was very kind and helpful. My new mug should arrive soon. I have purchased many other beautiful items from them and NO issues. I am satisfied to say that when I did have an issue, it was resolved quickly and professionally. I will absolutely be making future purchases from Zenwaro!
