Grand Canyon Gift Idea – Locally Made and Stamped with AzRA Love
Mark Arne Arnegard operates Arne Ceramics out of Flagstaff, Arizona. Mark, or more commonly called Arne, has lived in Flagstaff since 1967. He is an avid outdoorsman and uses nature to influence his art. Arne specializes in making high quality stoneware products. Arne’s stoneware collection is 100% made in Flagstaff! The stoneware is produced with no toxic elements and is microwave and dishwasher safe. Arne adorns AzRA’s custom 12 oz. or 16 oz. handmade ceramic mug with the AzRA Many People Logo. Each one is handmade, consequently no two are alike and they are signed and stamped with the year. It is the perfect way to commemorate an amazing adventure vacation!
Benefits of Clay Stoneware
Not only will you simply cherish the memory of your Grand Canyon raft adventure with your AzRA stoneware mug, but there are many benefits to using stoneware including:
- Trendy – Stoneware will never go out of style as it has been historically reliable in traditional and modern kitchens.
- Unique – The glazing process creates one and only complex designs.
- Durable – Resistant to cracking and chipping due to the quality glaze (but not indestructible and can be susceptible to cracking from thermal shock).
AzRA Stoneware and How to Get it
In 2012, AzRA Owners Fred and Alexandra Thevenin were looking for a creative gift idea for the AzRA staff. They called Arne’s Ceramics and ordered exclusive stoneware mugs featuring the AzRA Many People Logo. Shortly after they gifted the ceramic mugs to the staff, guests began asking about buying an AzRA mug for themselves. Consequently, Alexandra and Fred acquired additional mugs to sell as souvenirs to guests. Since, AzRA has sold dozens of Arne’s mugs! We appreciate that our guests support us. We return the gesture and support Flagstaff small businesses and local artists.
The Arne mugs (and other river gear, souvenirs and small gift ideas) are available for purchase online from AzRA’s very own Red River Sports or by calling AzRA headquarters at 800-786-7238. We pack and ship with care to ensure everything arrives to you in one piece. And we are so confident that you will like the stoneware mug, we offer you a 100% refund if you don’t. You may also purchase a mug at your pre-trip orientation or post-trip return.
