We dare you to think of a time you were truly happy upon receiving a basic mug for a present. Nope. We got nothing. But we sense that things are about to change with Minted Brush and Artist Gayatri's charming mugs. Yes, we said charming! She makes hers a standout with delicate and original watercolour flowers and floral patterns that are printed on either clear glass or our favourites, frosted mugs. These are as pretty as a picture -- think gorgeous cherry blossoms, sunflowers bunches, bright violet blossoms and crimson poppies enlivening an everyday mug.
But these pretties are more than beverage holders! You can use them as planters, pen stands or even as little jars to dip your brushes into like the artist does. They are also big-sized (350ml) and are fairly priced at INR 350 each. Larger watercolour botanical patterns on ceramic mugs are available too.
Gayatri is also known for her original watercolour artworks, mostly of landscapes and florals again. She also makes beautiful calligraphic art, so feel free to commission some for a loved one or friend. These are available as bookmarks too. Her brush work and detailing is excellent despite having to work with finicky watercolours. Lovers of art and anything handmade will truly appreciate gifts from The Minted Brush.
