An absolute hit!

Great Smoky Mountains NP

“Our mugs were an absolute hit this year at Great Smoky Mountain National Park! From the beautiful, crisp detail of the artwork to the quality craftsmanship, the mugs were difficult to keep in stock! We love being able to tell the story of a second-generation family business that creates its mugs on a potter’s wheel! We look forward to working with Deneen Pottery again next year and can’t wait to collaborate on our second edition FALL mug!”

“After nearly 10 years in business, sometimes we are left scratching our heads for new creative marketing materials and merchandise that really “wow” our clientele. When I first saw a shot of a Deneen Mug, (via my obstacle course group the New England Spahtens), I knew it was the eye catching item we had been searching for. The response after my initial email through the website was so prompt, and the service was so wonderful! We had the ball rolling on our order of mugs and key fobs within 24 hours. Everything was impeccable from the design process, to the easy ordering, and most importantly the day we all anxiously awaited- when the mugs arrived! They were more beautifully crafted then we could have imagined, and we can’t wait to share them with our customers – if any are left after the staff gets them that is! We will definitely be ordering again!”

Phenomenal visitor response!

Canyonlands National Park

“I met Niles Deneen in 2013 at a trade show for national park gift stores in Portland Oregon. A friend of mine who buys for 63 national parks introduced us because he couldn’t believe I wasn’t doing business with Deneen Pottery. I loved the samples Niles showed me and was impressed with the detail and various styles of art work and the multitude of colors and glazes. I brought in Deneen Pottery mugs for four national park units in southeast Utah at the beginning of 2014 and couldn’t keep them in stock. After running out of several designs on multiple occasions, I began ordering mugs by the pallet. The visitor response to these mugs has been phenomenal. Thank you Niles for putting out such a quality product that is handmade in America.”

American craftsmanship alive and well.

Husqvarna

“I was introduced to Deneen mugs by a partner of ours at ORCA Coolers who gave me one of their logo mugs. As a java-holic I used it daily. As a trainer who works for a company that prides itself on quality and craftsmanship I could tell right away what a great quality handmade mug it was. I reached out to have some made for special gifts at our corporate headquarters. It was so well received and people were so impressed we decided to add them to our online store! Thanks Niles for making such a great quality product and keeping American craftsmanship alive and well.”

they sold like hot cakes

New England Spahtens

Having seen another Deneen mug, I fell in love with their quality and uniqueness, and we worked with Deneen to come up with an amazing design, mug style and colors, and we tentatively placed an order for 50 mugs.

Just one week after putting them on sale, I’ve only got 10 left – they sold like hot cakes, and people LOVE their mugs! They’ve been a huge hit, and we plan on doing an annual run of them!

...blown away by the beauty

J’s Pastry Shop

“The first box arrived yesterday, and my wife, who opened it up at our house, was blown away by the beauty of all four colors. I had seen photos of the red and green, but even I was surprised at how gorgeous the final product turned out. To see our J’s Pastry Shop sign emblazoned on these mugs made us feel very good about our decision to offer these to our customers. They will love them and snap them up!”
