Society's tools may have evolved greatly over the past several generations, but many of our tea-drinking rituals have not. The Pocket Mug is a lovely piece of crockery with traditional feel about it, yet it demonstrates a progression towards practicality in a domain that's at a standstill.

Sarah Welch makes her Sidekick Mug -- as many of her other gorgeous objects -- from clay. It's been fired and finished so that it's microwave and dishwasher safe, and it features a charming dripping pattern in the colorful glaze.

Now, the handmade ceramic object's most notable feature is the protrusion that appears like a spout. The Pocket Mug incorporates this generous pouch in which to discard an unwanted teabag, affording greater convenience and tidiness than a saucer or a separate dish.
