Wrap your mitts around a gorgeous handmade mug from Next of Kin

The best thing about winter is being able to don warm and comfy clothes, snuggling up under a blanket and sipping warm drinks. We know that just thinking about it gives you the warm and fuzzies, but just imagine how good it would be with a lovingly crafted mug to sip from. Next of Kin makes such a vessel to fill with your favourite winter warmer, infusing each piece with love and care.


The kettle has boiled, the coffee has been brewed, the wine has been mulled – all you need is a decent mug to sip from. Just any old cup won’t do – you need something that has personality and warmth imbued in it. Next of Kin is a ceramics brand that has a receptacle that fills the bill perfectly – a mug that is all about slow living, supporting conscious consumption and the preservation of planet earth, and appreciating the little things while you take five. 

Founded in 2016, Next of Kin is the brainchild of mother and daughter duo Fiona and Suzanne, who handle the artistic and business side of Next of Kin respectively. Fiona has drawn upon her 30 years of experience in ceramics for Next of Kin, handcrafting every product in her pottery studio located in North Queensland. As a result of the handcrafting and stoneware firing process each mug is different, which means that every experience is uniquely yours. The coming months will see the unveiling of a full tableware range and more lovingly crafted products. Head to the Next of Kin website to have a closer look at the wares, then go get the hot chocolate ready – winter sipping just got a lot better.
