I came across this ceramic mug and wondered if it would work as a shaving mug? What makes a good mug?[Image: 834aa58f2483bea9fe722b2ed77980a6.jpg][Image: f0fd1ab2c4fbf40b71b2bfb5c9bce0c2.jpg]

That should make a decent lathering bowl. I look for a wide mouth and some texture on the bottom is good, but not too much - sometimes the grooves that some potters put into the bottom of bowls are a little too abrasive and can damage your badger brushes although they will break in your boar brushes much faster. I don't want the sides of the bowl to be too high because I don't want to rattle the brush handle off the sides of the bowl - can damage the brush and/or the bowl and I don't like the sound either. I like the diameter of the bowl to fit into my hand comfortably, not too big and not too small and I like it to have some outer texture so it doesn't become slick. I hope it works for you.

Thanks. That's exactly the information I was looking for and it's under $10.
