This is definitely a self-portrait. Sometimes I leave Eric downstairs to watch TV and "retire" early. I curl up under our quilt (which isn't quite as cute as this one, but still beautiful). I make sure Pete is comfy and warm, and I get settled in. There are a lot of choices of things to read, because my floor and nightstand are littered with half-finished books. I hope this mug evokes the feeling of that cozy-nestled-in-bed feeling, when you're so into your book but you're also drifting off. 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.
