By joining the Mug Club you treat yourself or a friend to a beautiful handmade mug each season! Its like a wine club or CSA. As a member, you'll receive a different mug every three months, adding a new, handcrafted, coffee or tea mug to your collection. Thats 4 mugs over the course of one year. Or, if you'd like to share the experience with a friend or partner, you can sign up to receive a pair of matching mugs each season, for a total of 8 mugs! New mugs will be ready approximately every three months, arriving in June, September, December, and March. If you join today, your next mug will be ready by the end of September, 2018.
Business is bustling here at Wolf Ceramics! I now have two part time studio assistants and have work in shops all around Portland as well as in other parts of the country. I have committed to paying a minimum wage of $15/hour. I have thoroughly enjoyed bringing new members onto our team! As Wolf Ceramics grows, the Mug Club continues to be a steady and ongoing source of inspiration for new designs, as well as a steady source of work, and a tool for building community around this business.
I appreciate your support and it brings me such great pleasure to create the objects that my friends and community will drink their coffee or tea from each morning. The Mug Club also gives me the freedom to explore and introduce new designs, and it is my hope that all of the members enjoy the year-long experience of being a part of it.
Pricing for the Mug Club is on a sliding scale and the cost covers one year's membership, 4 mugs (or 4 pairs of mugs). If you are eager to support, excited about new mugs for your home, and financially able, you can choose to join the club as a "Patron of the Arts". If you are a student, I'll cut you a deal!
Sliding Scale Pricing:
Student: $130 single / $255 pair ($32.50 - $31.80/mug)
Regular: $160 single / $315 pair ($40 - $39.38/mug)
Patron of the Arts: $190 single / $375 pair ($48 - $46.87/mug)
The shipping cost covers the shipping for all four packages, one per season for the year. Its automatically added into the price if you select an option with shipping.
For those of you who are local to the Portland area, you can select the “Seasonal Studio Pickup” option (no shipping charges). I offer pickup times and locations for Mug Club members in the Portland area. You will receive an email with pickup information when your mugs are ready each season.
