‘Tis the season for snowy Zoom backgrounds and sitting through meetings in fleece pajama pants…and for sippin’ your favorite hot beverage in this year’s gift from the Department of Chemistry. Featuring a black halo rim and a speckled glaze pattern that’s unique to each mug, this camp-inspired drinkware is ready for adventure!
“I have always been very fond of mathematics—for one short period, I even toyed with the possibility of abandoning chemistry in its favor. I enjoyed immensely both its conceptual and formal beauties, and the precision and elegance of its relationships and transformations. Why then did I not succumb to its charms? … Because by and large, mathematics lacks the sensuous elements which play so large a role in my attraction to chemistry. I love crystals, the beauty of their forms and formation; liquids, dormant, distilling, sloshing! The fumes, the odors—good or bad, the rainbow of colors; the gleaming vessels of every size, shape and purpose—including this 14oz. ceramic campfire mug branded with the MIT Chemistry logo!”
– Robert Burns Woodward
