So there I am, enjoying a nice morning coffee out of my new Mountain Mug and well...you ever get the feeling you're being watched?
I looked around, saw no one, and went back to enjoy my next sip. That's when I felt the tug on my leg.
"Meow!" said the cat, jealously.
"Woof!" said the dog, with a subtle hint of authority.
I knew what had to be done, and arrangements were made.
And now we all drink & eat out of matching mugs and bowls and all I can say is that life is really, really good.
The Mountain Pet Bowl is a beauty to behold.
These handmade wheel-thrown ceramic pet bowls have an outdoorsy design that speaks to the sophisticated-yet-rugged style of your favorite pet. What can you say? You raised them right.
The Mountain Pet Bowl is made with stoneware clay with exposed hand-carved raw clay detailing. The bowls are available in both 6" and 8" sizes (handmade so it may vary slightly).
Can be used as a food bowl or a water bowl for your pets - order two bowls to have a matching set!
Every Mountain Pet Bowl is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
Pro-Tip: Just because they're styled as "pet bowls", there's no pet required. Enjoy a big bowl of ice cream or use them as serving bowls (pistachios anyone?) - the lack of a pet shouldn't stop you from enjoying this incredible bowl!
Each Mountain Pet Bowl is made by hand, one clay curve and brushstroke at a time, which means they are all unique and may be slightly different in size, coloring, or design. While the overall coloration and style will be consistent, please be aware that the bowl you receive may look slightly different than the photos on our website.
Please know that because of the handmade nature we aren't able to stock large quantities of the pet bowls and it can sometimes take 6-8 weeks for the artist to craft more.
If the pet bowl is in stock and you're thinking about ordering, don't wait on it!
Michelle creates beautiful, hand and wheel-thrown pieces from her studio, classroom, and gallery in Evergreen, Colorado.
Her pottery takes inspiration from the simplistic properties of art itself; form, color, and line, with additional nature-inspired details. All of her work is high-fired, reaching a temperature above 2400 degrees, and made from the most durable stoneware clay.
We fell in love with Michelle's incredible ceramic work and we're incredibly honored to work together to bring these beautiful pieces to the Trek Light Gear collection.
COVID-19 Update: Our warehouse is adopting safe social distance practices and taking all necessary measures to ship orders with the highest safety standards. These measures may result in longer fulfillment times than normal so we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.Our standard policy is still detailed below for your reference.
We know what it's like to order something online and want to have it in your hands as quickly as possible. We ask that you allow us 1 business day to process your order and get it ready to ship, however we do everything we can to get orders out the door as soon as they come in - which means most packages ship the very same day you order.
Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our mail pickup will be shipped the next business day whenever possible.
We offer the ability to pre-order and back order some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.
Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory. Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!
We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing separate orders so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.
If you choose an option like "Express (2 Business Days)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly two days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).
Please see our separate Carrier Info page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.
When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.
PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!
If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!
For every item sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change.
Trees For The Future uses a Forest Garden approach to reforestation - planting trees to not only provide environmental benefits, but also food, income, and community agriculture where it's needed most.
Every purchase creates a chain reaction of good and happiness in the world, and it all starts with you.
As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?
In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.
Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.
What matters is that we're here for you.
We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.
Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.
If for any reason you're not happy with anything you ordered from us, just send it back to us within 30 days by following the instructions below.
The product must be in unused or 'like-new' condition - you're welcome to try a product to make sure you like it, but we cannot accept returns that are abused, stained, washed/laundered, or otherwise damaged (unless the damage is the result of a manufacturer's defect, in which case it is covered under our Lifetime Warranty).

These are gorgeous. Unique, with little imperfections that give them so much character. Fair warning - they can't be handled as you would a metal bowl, and the bigger bowls seem a little sturdier than the smaller ones, but would still recommend!
Love this dog bowl. Beautiful addition to my kitchen. My dogs love it too!
Absolutely love these dog bowls. Ordered two of the 6-inch versions for my pup and they're the perfect size and great quality. Not to mention the cool design! He's such a hip pooch with his new bowls.
Absolutely love these Mountain pet bowls. They’re so cute and each one is slightly different since they’re hand made (and signed on the bottom too, no less). The six inch are the perfect size for my 20 pound dachshund. So glad I decided to buy them.
