Moon Mug (light)
Nilā means the Moon in Tamil.
Ever since I moved to the Nilgiris, I started spending so much time outdoors. To watch the Moon became a daily routine. Receiving the energy of the Moon and watching my thoughts during the process helps me reflect on the day before I retire to bed.
The Moon has helped me understand the bright side as well as the dark side. To embrace the darkness within is something I've learnt during my Moon watching sessions.
I've tried to create the Lunar surface onto the mugs to feel closer to the Moon. The craters are symbolic to the scars one must embrace. The imperfect perfection of the Moon is something I admire.
These mugs are functional collectibles for someone looking for something unique and one of a kind piece.
Ayra's comfort mug is known for its skillful, form centric, handcrafted expertise. The form is thoughtfully designed with a base that gradually curves inside to the foot with a mouth rim designed to fit your lips perfectly.
The feel of the mug is sturdy yet light as I spend a lot of time working on it's balance that makes for a perfectly crafted mug ideal for the coffee and tea lovers.
