Carl’s Jugs + Mugs

by Kentucky For Kentucky |

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve visited Carl Wagoner’s pottery wheel of fortune, but with the holidays just around the corner, we’re ready and willing to get glazed in his world. Carl, Kentucky’s premier preacher, teacher, soldier spy has plied us with strong drink, and brought to our attention his wonders- the mighty jugs and mugs of the Bluegrass..

Earlier this year, we launched some of Mr. Wagoner’s previous clay dandies, and everybody celebrated his passion for crafting fine jugs. Now, back by popular demand, it’s time to showcase his double feature, and experience the gifts that truly keep on giving.


This Wednesday at 10:00am, we’re celebrating this kick-ass KY craftsman by launching both decorative clay jugs in an icy blue glaze, as well as speckled coffee mugs that proudly sport the visage of our fine state. Don’t miss your chance to party.

Lg. Jug- $48, Sm. Jug- $32, Coffee Mugs- $22/ea.
