Seasons Greetings !!
With all the chat re: the mug exchange, I just really looked at my
favorite mug and saw that the formerly blue rim has leached out white on the
side I drink from. Yuck !! What an awful feeling to wonder what I have
absorbed - especially since the glaze is blue.
Listen to the glaze gurus and check for leaching before you sell your
Chris Campbell - in North Carolina - on the other hand, the mug has never
crazed, it fits my hand just right and the un-used parts still look great.
I'll give it a 3 out of 4.

Thanks for posting this - valuable information for anyone trying to make a
living selling functional ware.
I wonder how many - like me - wondered who made that mug and if anyone else
thought - don't want to buy any functional work from whoever made it.
Not trying to pin them down but they could use some help - why not contact
them and tell them the glaze might be fixable.
The Canadian (and I'm sure elsewhere) rules about toxic glazes now
stipulate that there be none a specific distance down from the rim on the
outside to make sure this exact situation does not arise.
