Twenty years ago Sean Murray, of Wild Wood Vermont, moved from his native Ireland to Vermont. He now resides in Hinesburg with his wife and three children. Sean tells us that he has always had a love for hand crafting, and ten years ago began turning wood. He has made bowls, plates, cocktail shakers, and salt and pepper grinders.
Soon Sean had an idea to make a travel mug, but it had to meet a certain criteria. Sean tells us: “I didn’t want just any kind of mug. I wanted a mug that would fit nice in my car cup holder, one that was lightweight and one that was smooth to the touch.”
It was just a year ago that Sean made his first cedar travel mug; as a gift for his wife. The cedar wood was thoughtfully chosen. “I found that working with Cedar not only gave the mugs their own unique design from the grains and knots within the wood but the smell of the Cedar and the beautiful colors that protrude from the wood is the reason I use Cedar as my #1 Choice in wood.” -Sean
After many compliments and requests Sean decided to open his own Etsy shop to showcase and sell his cedar travel mugs. Etsy added Sean’s Soda-Blasted mugs on their trending list for the month of April. Sean has plans to add more of his products to his shop. In addition to getting an amazing mug, your purchase will also give back. For every sale, a donation will be made to the Plant It 2020 foundation and a tree will be planted in Vermont.
Note that these mugs are not just for coffee and tea. Check out the personalized mugs for The Alchemist.
We agree with Sean’s wife, friends, and clients: these mugs are great! They are well made with high quality wood and are uniquely Vermont.
