Gosh I love this mug! The texture is incredible -- I can't stop touching the exterior. It stays nicely warm when in use, but the clay is really lovely and thick and provides a lot of good insulation. The glaze inside is beautiful and glossy and stays intact when exposed to heat -- no cracking! It's a wonderful, sturdy piece that is substantial enough not to tip over but still lightweight enough to handle easily. The handle is nice too -- very smooth. Of course the design is also gorgeous. I'm very happy with my purchase -- it's my first after many years of following, and I can't wait to get more!
