We Bet Hot Chocolate Tastes Twice as Sweet From These Mugs With Tiny Animals Hidden in the Nooks

3 years ago

Ceramic artist Brooke Knippa of AP Curiosities in Maine (in the US) doesn’t make plain tea and coffee mugs — she creates pure magic instead. She makes little nooks in her mugs that house tiny animal figures. From charming owlets and curled up foxes taking a peaceful nap to whales and even a Yeti, each mug created by Brooke is a masterpiece that has a whole world hidden inside.

When we saw these brilliant mugs by Brooke Knippa here at Bright Side, we instantly fell in love with them, and now we dream of drinking our morning coffee and evening tea together with the tiny, cute, ceramic animals in our hands. We can’t wait to show you Brooke’s work and bet they’ll charm you at first sight.
