Pottery is not a low impact activity. Clay and other raw chemicals are mined from the earth and manufactured into commercial clay that then ends up in the hands of potters all over the globe. The good news, however, is that clay can be recycled as long as it has not yet been fired. These mugs are made from my recycled clay, which is a mix of all things Doghouse! Every single clay body (about 8 at the moment) that I use makes up these mugs. Some have a little hint of blue, others have splotches of brown here and there, and all were made with the notion of reducing waste in mind.
