The sun is shining, the trails are beckoning and your bike is calling. But first! Coffee! We’re not sure about you, but we can’t start our day without a big mug of coffee. Everyone at Thunder Mountain Bikes in Sedona, Arizona reaches for Freeform Coffee first thing in the morning and our mug of choice is a Jason Bohnert custom mug!
When you think of mountain bike accessories a unique, hand-thrown ceramic mug might not be the first thing that comes to mind. After enjoying your morning coffee in one, however, we think you’ll come to appreciate them as much as your favorite pair of baggies.
Trail biking in Sedona, Arizona is as unique an experience as these mugs made by local artist and mountain biker, Jason Bohnert. Each mug is hand thrown and fired in Flagstaff, Arizona. Uniquely different, you can see and feel the passion from the artist in each mug. These creations share our stoke for riding and celebrating the art in everything. They are perfect for enjoying your pre-ride beverage.
Jason’s work is 100% handmade. All clays and glazes are custom mixed by hand at his studio in nearby Flagstaff, AZ. They are then fired in his hybrid gas/wood/soda kiln or the large wood-burning kilns at Northern Arizona University where he teaches. At NAU he teaches classes on ceramics, design, and drawing. Each mug is finely thrown, handbuilt, and assembled, with careful attention to excellent craftsmanship and design.
All of Jason’s Thunder Mountain Bike’s mugs are meant to be used daily. Although they are microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe, you’ll always want to be careful handling our mountain bike shop’s logo ceramic mugs. After all, each piece is a one-of-a-kind work of ceramic art!
