Drink your beverage of choice in style and show your love of horror with these incredible art cups from Kevin Merck better known as TURKEY MERCK. These handcrafted mugs are made of stoneware, finished with ceramic glazes and fired in a kiln to 2200 degrees (F). Each mug receives a minimum of three layers of glaze and three kiln firings; the whole process takes countless hours of hands-on craftsmanship but one can’t argue with the results:
Each mug measures five inches in height and holds approximately 15oz (Screamer/Vampyr), 16oz (Cranky Kevin) and 20oz (Skull) of your beverage. Despite the fact that they are designed dishwasher safe, Merck recommends handwashing for obvious reasons. Take care of your mug, or it will take care of you!
Merck’s mugs sell out very quickly and the best way to assure you know when releases are coming out is to sign up to the TURKEY MERCK newsletter on their website. I do have it on good authority, however, that CRANKY KEVIN, SKULL and VAMPYR are still being produced (offered in multiple variations of each design). The VAMPYR mug is the next design to be released tentatively on January 30th, 2018 (all details of the release are sent out via newsletter and social media accounts).
Prices of each mug range from $250-$400 with misfit mugs usually priced a little lower (misfit mugs have a few blemishes). If you want to drink in devilishly delightful style grab yourself a TURKEY MERCK custom mug and fill it up with a ghastly liquid or two!
