Getting over gloomy Monday morning hangover is one of the most difficult tasks for most of us. But creative pottery artist Kevin “Turkey” Merck has come up with a cool solution in the form of coffee mugs that resemble undead creatures or zombies.
A high school teacher by profession, Kevin’s interest for pottery had made him learn the art from his best friend’s dad, Wayne Hewell, who is a 5th generation master potter.
He takes out time every evening and on Saturdays to handcraft these mugs out of clay and epoxy resin. Made in small batches, these ceramic-glazed mugs are fashioned with zombie faces for an eerie visual effect.
According to Kevin, these scary-face mugs are glazed two times and then fired to 2200 (F) degrees to ensure each piece is functional, durable and safe to drink from. Each mug measure 4-6 inches tall and hold approximately 12-33oz.
These stoneware cast mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe but still Merck recommends opting for gentle hand washing after use. Currently sold out, the next limited edition release is scheduled for February 2016.
These gruesome mugs are designed to offer safe delivery and for additional safety- the zombie mugs are double boxed with extra bubble wrap and air pillows.
