Mug Madness 2019

This Spring, Saltstone Ceramics will be teaming up with Justin Rothshank to bring you a hot head-to-head competition: MUG MADNESS.

In this bracket-style tournament, mugs will be matched in a single-elimination knock-out contest. Who will make the top 8? Who will be the Cinderella Story? Who will take home the championship and $500 top prize!?!?

the competition

Every day throughout March, we’ll present two mugs in a head-to-head contest. The winner of each day’s contest is decided by counting three votes:

  • One from Justin Rothshank, our Juror Extraordinaire.

  • One from Sarah Steininger Leroux of Saltstone Ceramics.

  • One from the internet: we’ll tabulate community votes online, and the most popular will count as the third vote.

The winner moves on to the next round; the loser is eliminated.

The winner of the $500 championship prize will be announced on March 31, 2019.
