The Different Types of Ceramic Mugs

Ceramic mugs are a type of cup that hold hot beverages well because their handles allow a person to keep on holding the cup without being burnt. They are used to hold coffee, tea, porridge and hot cocoa or chocolate however some people use their mugs to hold hot soup. For a mug to actually qualify to be called a mug, they must have a handle.


Mugs are made from ceramic materials like bone china, earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. They can also be made from Pyrex which is glass that has been industrially strengthened. This is quite different from the olden times when ceramic mugs were made from clay, bone or wood. They also did not have a variety of designs as most mugs have today.


Mugs made from ceramic are greatly favored by most people today because they can come in a variety of designs and one can be able to personalize them in various ways including using silk through screen printing or drawing images. The good thing about working on ceramic mugs is that any design put on it will be very hard to remove and thus most designs will often last the mug’s life time.


A very much sought after and unique ceramic mug  is the Tiki mug. It is a type of mug that originated in the mid American Tiki bars and restaurants with tropical themes. Each mug usually has a unique sculpture that portrays an image of one of the Tiki gods from Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia. But today the mugs are used pretty much to describe anything and everything tropical from surfs to beautiful images and the ocean.


The mugs are usually very beautiful and used by people as a means of relaxation and escaping from the hassles of everyday life. However due to the nature of Tiki mugs they are very hard to personalize. The sculpturing is usually intricate and adding words; images or design on it needs a very special skill.


If you can get a personalized Tiki mug and give it as a gift to anyone it can be highly appreciated since Tiki mugs form a part of the few mugs considered as collectibles. Furthermore due to their value they can last for a very long time when taken care of well.


Ceramic mugs have been in use for a very long time and they can make excellent gifts or used to advertise various services due to their wide range of uses. If you are a business man or a person looking for a gift, try ceramic mugs they are affordable and very functional.
