HORROR IN CLAY opens a cask of whoopass

(UPDATE: The campaign hit its funding goal during the first day!)

I'm rapidly running out of shelf space in my cabinets, thanks to HORROR IN CLAY.

The company is the work of CHS contributor Jonathan M. Chaffin. While his first two mugs showcased his love for H.P. Lovecraft, his latest will expand the brand to include a little Edgar Allan Poe.

Inspired by Poe's 1846 story, "The Cask of Amontillado," the mug features appropriately Poe-etic imagery. You can see it in the video above, so I won't waste any space here describing it ... but it's ridiculously cool.

Chaffin is planning two versions of the mug. The production edition funded by the Kickstarter campaign is expected to be a 7.5 inch, 22oz mug, and will come in a matte, wiped brown glaze. A limited-edition version (available at the higher donor levels) will be the same size, but will be hand glazed in multi-step, multi-tone process.

If you want to score one of these mugs via the Kickstarter campaign (which ends in early May) you can do so by clicking HERE.
