Martin Luther King Mug
UK delivery £3.50 - Free delivery on orders over £40!
Our limited edition of 100 Martin Luther King mugs, by Bev Milward and Chris Chalkley, came into being in the days before lockdown. Now his words seem even more poignant.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
An original 1970’s transfer known as ‘oatmeal’ is applied to a cream mug, and the text and ink spots are laid over the top. When fired the double layer causes the text to drop producing a quirky and unique element to each mug.
