Wild Atlantic Way Mug


Made by Mud Ireland

Wild Atlantic Way mug, handcrafted by Mud Ireland in Co. Armagh.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a breathtaking route along the West Coast of Ireland, where the powerful Atlantic tides and storms have carved an epic, mystical landscape.

The Wild Atlantic Mug is inspired by this beauty, with a dark Atlantic blue glaze, crashing through Teal and Seafoam White onto a bare Donegal Speckle clay, a tactile memory of Ireland’s coarse, golden sand. Size: approx. 9cm x 8.5cm.
