What is it?

A collection of mugs at The University of Florida Art and Architecture library for you to check out and use, just like a book but more delicious.

How does it work?

1) Pick a Mug

Seriously, There are 17 amazing pots to choose from made by artists from the USA and Canada.

2) Use it for a week

Pottery is meant to be used. It is my belief that you can only understand the nuances and great breadth of form through use, with you hands and lips. Drink some tea. Have some coffee. Take it around, enjoy it for a whole seven days.

3) Wash it, return it.

Be curtious to the fabulous librarians clean it up, practice for your roommates and loved ones, scrub it, dry it, put it back in its beautiful laser cut box and return it, just like a book. Maybe get another one!

Want to contribute? We’d love you to make us a mug. 

The is the first UF library to embrace mugs. Thanks largely to the fabulous Ann Lindell (who’s very own mug you can check out). There are six other UF libraries full of students just waiting for a hands on education.
