Oakwash Mugs


Hi! My name is Omar and I make mugs with my business Oakwash. I started making ceramic pottery four years ago and now work full time creating awesome drinking vessels. We have built out our little mug factory right in my backyard and spend days casting, cleaning, and glazing our designs. This is all new and exciting and thanks for joining me on the ride..
