I first started making this mug in the height of the pandemic, when we were all working from home and communal studio spaces were shuttered. It's been years since I've worked in a group studio, but I found myself missing it. In this one, I included myself underglazing at a table in front of glaze test tiles. Even though I have headphones on, I'm happy to be sharing the space with these other ceramicists, all working hard, happily. I am really into this color combo of pink, chartreuse, dark green, and red. This mug holds about 12 oz of coffee, tea, wine, or tequila.
Each piece is wonkily handbuilt and hand-drawn. Each line and color is done by me! If you are looking for a pristine piece of handmade ceramics then this is not it! It is built securely but with character. It is food and microwave safe, but I would recommend lovingly hand-washing it. Each piece is one of a kind, made out of earthenware clay and sgraffito-ed with goofy imagery.
