Large hand made porcelain ceramic mugs inspired by the Raktajino mugs in Star Trek Deep Space Nine.
The process goes: mould designed with CAD, 3D resin printed, silicone casing cast from the 3D print, plaster mould cast in the silicone and finally porcelain cast in the plaster mould. The design and mould making process alone took 6 months to perfect, and there are still some refinements I would like to make.
The green ones are currently made with coloured porcelain as the outer layer, and I'm working on burgundy porcelain to be able to do those the same way, but unfortunately the red seems to burn out in the kiln and so far I've made pink ones! So the burgundy are hand painted with maroon underglaze at present, whilst I continue testing coloured porcelain.
Due to popular demand I have now added a custom order option for those of you that want a solid coloured mug (or even one with two different colours inside and out). I apologise for the dreadful cost but there is an extremely high failure rate when colouring both the inside and outside of these mugs in terms of the glaze adhesion which I have yet to find a resolution for, so I lose 50% of every batch.
The mugs hold approximately 500ml (18oz), and keep your drink warm for longer as they are narrower at the top. Please note that they are not a direct copy or replica of the original ones in Star Trek, they have been recreated from the ground up using pictures and so the measurements are not quite the same.
I am also working on alternative shapes of Raktajino mug - let me know if you'd be interested in those :)

Beautifully crafted item and good customer service. After a small query on initial inspection of the item, which is to be a gift, I am grateful to Ros for sorting the issue quickly. Many thanks.
