The Wee Bit Irish Mug’s tall and practical design is juxtaposed with whimsical and fun text embossing which reads, “Just a wee bit Irish.” The mug also features a traditional shamrock and a large oval handle for easy grip! This mug makes a perfect gift for those who are proud of their Irish heritage and who might enjoy some Irish Cream flavor in their coffee!
The symbol of the shamrock (or young clover) is a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is said to have seen the shamrock as a metaphor for the Holy Trinity of Christianity. It is an enduring image for Ireland and has been expressed in many forms including by the Irish poet Thomas Moore in his ballad, “Oh the Shamrock.”
When painting the Wee Bit Irish Mug, consider using the colors of the Irish flag, or tricolor, of orange, white, and green! The green represents the Roman Catholics of Ireland, while the orange color represents the Protestants! The white between them on the flag is meant to represent enduring peace between the two populations.
Create a vibrant and fun Wee Bit Irish Mug with vivid greens and orange and white, and display your Irish heritage and history proudly with this lovely piece of hand-poured bisque!
Once you’ve finished painting the pottery to your liking, the Wee Bit Irish Mug will be given a clear glaze and fired in a kiln to make the colors pop and also to seal and waterproof the mug! After this step, the coffee mug will have a durable outer coating suitable for hand washing!
So, display some Irish pride wirth the Wee Bit Irish Mug! It will look great on any desk or shelf, and it makes the perfect gift for the Gaelic guy or gal in your life!
