The Making of Dunoon mugs
A new mug from Dunoon is produced every 2.5 seconds of the working day, always to the most exacting standards. The highest quality china clay is used, chosen for its translucency, whiteness, and strength. The mugs are made using the slip cast process, which results in very fine and light yet strong china. Every mug produced by Dunoon undergoes seventeen different processes, (excluding the design and print elements), and each person who works on the production line takes personal pride in their aspect of the manufacture. The same man has been mixing the slip that is poured into the molds for thirty years! The mug handles are fired separately and are always attached by hand, as are the lithographic transfer decorations. Rigorous quality control takes place three times during the process: after the initial biscuit firing after the glaze has been fired, and after the litho transfer has been fired. At each of these stages, any flaws found will be ground out and polished. Due to being fired three times, the final mug will be 12.5% smaller than its starting size.
