I was sitting in my studio on afternoon and realized that elephant ears look kind of like butterfly wings...so I painted and carved 3 mugs that have trunks as the handle and wings as the ears. Plus a few fancy insects on the back, so if you are drinking coffee with friends they can oogle at the pattern as well. About 4.75" tall holds at least 16oz this is a large mug. I have people tell me when they drink coffee out of their JPOP mugs they are well caffeinated for the morning.
