These porcelain pieces are fired at the Kristoff workshop in Valbrich, Poland, one of the oldest and grandest porcelain workshops in the world. Kristoff has been making porcelain since 1831 and its work can be found in museums and in the palaces of royalty. Our porcelain designs are in-glaze, which means slightly melted into the surface of the piece, to ensure a beautiful crisp image for years to come. Photo by Porcelana Krzysztof Sp. z o.o.

I haven't bought these Xmas mugs..yet..my family would need them in a 20 oz size for a healthy share of hot cocoa AND a generous dollop of whipped cream..is a 20 oz size something that you might consider in the future? Fingers crossed..Happy Holidays!!!
I was very excited when I got your email about these - I love the "normal" blue 20 oz mugs, and these would be a wonderful addition to the fleet.....
Except only available in 12 oz. Please consider a large version of these next time.
Keep up the great work!
These mugs are my third set of Calamityware mugs. I have the blue 12 and 20oz. ones as well. I got my first set because of the artwork but the mug itself is such nice quality that they are my favorite mugs to use. When I saw the email about these holiday mugs I jumped to order a set. I received them very quickly. I love the clever holiday additions to the design. I think you need to do a set in green for next year. Then maybe a set in orange with Halloween art...brown for Thanksgiving...purple for Easter...
I am known for my weird sense of humor so I can get away with funny or unusual gifts. What makes this wonderful is how practical this gift is going to be too. I'm going to give these with fun teas and give them out to the family in gift baskets. I have bought several products from the site so I know your quality is top notch. Keep rolling out wonderful items that make my day every time I see them! Will buy more when and if you make these in the 20 ounce version.
These mugs were the best thing that came out of 2020. Granted, the bar was low.
I was so excited to see these mugs in red. The original willow ware came in many colors & styles: green, pink, brown, slate blue, and even gaudy which was multicolor. Here’s hoping we see more colors in Calamityware.
Also these are not the 20 oz mugs, I decided to buy them as a gift for a friend. My friend actually loves the size, and says it is perfect for tea and hot chocolate. The family plans to use them on Christmas Day this year! I've seen them, they are of very good quality and the pattern is hilarious. I'm really pleased with this purchase, so I can understand why people might want to have these mugs in the larger size as well.
It’s Christmas at my house today. . . I received my Calamityware Christmas mugs and two (more) things could be worse 20 ounce mugs. . . AND my favorite tea. I’m introducing my son to Calamityware this Christmas with both a large 20-oz and a Christmas mug. I missed out on the robot Christmas mug because I didn’t know about your wonderful and weird Calamityware so I’m happy to have this one. And I love it with all-Christmas weirdness peeking and poking everywhere on the mug. Thank you so much!!! 🐸🦖🦕🎅🏻🎄
As we slip closer to the swirling morass of Holiday Calamities, I take great joy & comfort in gripping my new bright red Holiday Things Could Be Worse 12oz. mugs and drinking libations. Viewing the horrific Holiday calamities brings a grin to my face each time I take a sip. Thanks Don for the terrific Holiday Calamityware surprise this year! My order arrived extra early and your robots packaged everything very carefully, so as to avoid any undue shipping calamities, well done team!
Fleeing gingerbread men did me in- had to have these. We already own a set of blue/white mugs and have bought some for others as housewarming gifts. Quality is high, porcelain is durable and the mugs are the perfect size for us- we like our coffee hot and can always finish it before it gets too cold.
