Mountain Mug

Sip your next morning coffee or afternoon tea from this handcrafted work of beauty. (Whoa, is that whiskey? Nice.)

Every mug is handmade with love and features beautifully hand-carved mountains to awaken your outdoor spirit no matter where you enjoy your next sip.

Because each mug is handmade, they are all unique and may be slightly different in size, detail, or coloring.

Food, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Holds 16oz comfortably.

Also available in matching pet bowls!

Note: Because of the increased shipping costs to make sure your mug arrives safely, all ceramic items are final-sale only and not eligible for return or exchange.


Beautiful Aesthetic, Functional Design

The Mountain Mug is a beauty to behold and a luxury to hold.

These hand-thrown ceramic mugs are made with a modern design that fits in your hands like it was made just for you. Each mug is made with stoneware clay along with exposed raw clay detailing.

It's the kind of mug that makes you sip just a little slower, just so you don't have to put it down.

Each mug is approximately 3.5" - 4" in diameter and height and holds 16oz of liquid comfortably.

One-Of-A-Kind, Limited Runs

Each mug 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 mug 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 these mugs and it can sometimes take 6-8 weeks for the artist to craft more.

If the mug is in stock and you're thinking about ordering, don't wait on it!

LessIsMore Ceramics - Michelle Silverstein

Meet The Maker:

Michelle Silverstein / LessIsMore Ceramics

Handmade With Love in Evergreen, CO

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: Our warehouse is continuing to take all necessary measures to ship orders with the highest safety standards. Life may feel like it's returning to normal in your local area (we hope!), but the impact of COVID-19 is still extremely present in the world of shipping and fulfillment.
We're still experiencing longer fulfillment times than normal so we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. These delays can impact both the time it takes to ship your order and the delivery of your order by the carrier.
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 1-2 business days 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 will 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 backorder 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 a separate order 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 Can I Request A Specific Shipping Carrier? 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!


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).

Holiday Extension: All purchases made in November or December will be allowed an extended return window thru 1/31. We'll make it easy for the gift recipient to handle any returns or exchanges!

Mountain Mug

I luv my mountain mug!
I use it all the time for coffee, cocoa and tea.
It’s a cute mug.

LOVE this company!! <3

This mountain mug immediately caught my attention and it did not disappoint in person! Absolutely gorgeous, well made and I love that it's dishwasher and microwave safe - many handcrafted mugs are not, but this one is. There was a small problem with the mug, most likely through no fault of Trek Light Gear, and they made it right immediately, no questions asked.
AMAZING customer service, beautiful products and a company that gives back - what more could you ask for?! Trek Light Gear, THANK YOU, you're awesome!

Love. This. Mug

Great mug. It has heft so you don’t feel like you’re going to break it easily. Great size. Looked like the photo. Really happy.

Love this mug!

This mug is super cool and unique, bought it for my husband as a present to use at our new weekend mountain home.

Perfect Gift

I bought this for a friend who is an avid skier that lives in a mountain town. She loves it, and she actually went on to buy a blanket from here after I showed her where the gift came from. She reports it's very well made and unique.
