Skull Mugs

A spooky realistic skull mug cast in English finest bone china. Great for coffee, cold drinks and fun with tea lights and candles.

About a year ago I hit on the idea of the skull mug. I wanted to create a mug that really looked like a skull, something that was true to form and with lots of details. The light bulb moment was realising I could be a different by applying new technology and my modeling and mould making skills. It took both a traditional hands-on modeling, mixed with 3D CAD and 3D printing, to achieve the desired result.

The mug is an accurate take of a real human skull because I started with real skull scans and worked to retain as much of the form and detail when creating the mug shape. I repeatedly tested the shapes modelled in CAD software, 3D printing the results, again and again until I eventually got the elegant shape and form I sought. It took many prototype prints.

The mug is made from the best English white fine bone china and manufactured in the Potteries, Stoke-on-Trent, England.
