Stoneware Glencairn commission from Mark Moehler

A group of us on the tea discord are doing a big commission from Mark Moehler for stoneware glencairns. Glencairns are whiskey glasses meant for concentrating the aroma at the nose while drinking. I personally dislike glassware in my tea practice, so here we are. You would have the option of an interior glaze or raw clay. Mark has experience making whiskey glasses for his dad and is excited to do the work! If you'd be interested in getting in on this experiment, please respond or DM me!

Currently we are looking at $15 a cup with $10 US shipping, though as more people add on that cost may go down. Of course, another issue would be more people will take more time as he is only working part time right now.

If this is the wrong place let me know.

not yet, since this is a commission (and currently a fairly large one at around 15 pieces!) he'll be doing a sample or two before finalizing, but he's never made this shape of cup before. To get a general idea of what they should look like, look at his tea pots and at the glass glencairn and mentally photoshop them together :lol:

No one is committing to anything just yet!

Honestly, I am keen but I would like to see a proof of concept first. I could either love it or hate it.

For sure. No one is committing to anything yet, but I think a prospective order of like 20 gives him a lot of incentive to perfect the design.

Do you have a discord so I can keep you in the loop better?
