Mugs are one of my favorite objects to make. There is something so simple yet complicated in the mug form. This object is often the most used in peoples lives and the most intimate of objects. These mugs are about comfort and practicality. Each one of my mugs is thrown on the wheel, made to resemble a tin can, every one a bit different from the other, different dents and slightly different size. I love mugs, how we reach for the same one everyday or we grab one that is for lounging around. Each mug in my cupboard has a special place in my heart, hope mine makes it into your cupboard and life!
2.5-3"x 3" Each one varies slightly
With all those specialty coffee machines now like Keurig, I thought I would make some mugs that fit in that realm.
This series of mugs are inspired by old tin cans. Each one is thrown and slightly different, with it's own dents, bumps, lines and color variation. They are glazed, fired, then sandblasted to give the exterior of the cup a soft matte finish. The interior space is left untouched to make it entirely food safe. In addition I hand sand each cup with wet/dry sandpaper to give them a soft and supple feel.
