Available now! Get your Lady Liberty mug here.
Lady Liberty is a symbol of acceptance, hope, and inspiration for all of us. She stands tall as a reminder to lend a hand to others, build strong communities, and to talk to our neighbors over a cup of coffee — and that's exactly why we decided to put her on our next mug.
Lady Liberty is illustrated with the torch and crown while her face and arm are replaced by a skeleton to show the mortality and fragility of freedom that we often take for granted.
Thomas Dragonette, our art director, designed her for a medallion that will be on a Deneen Pottery straight tankard mug in a mint with cinnamon and white glaze that matches the real Statue of Liberty. This mug holds 16+ ounces of coffee.
"We shut ourselves in a room and started scribbling down subjects, ideas, holidays and random ideas that we thought would make an interesting and collectible piece of pottery," Thomas said about designing the mug. "After reviewing our list and looking at past releases, we noticed a glaring issue — we need more women on our mugs."
And thus, the Lady Liberty mug idea was born (with more women illustrated on mugs to come this year).
This mug is for Flag Day, so stay tuned on when it will be released. Let’s raise our mugs in unity in celebration of each other and this great land we call home.
