Mugs are the most used piece of functional ware in our daily lives. Where would we be without our morning coffee or hot chocolate on a cold rainy day?
I choose to create pieces of artwork that positively enhance the users day. whether they encourage, inspire, stimulate, or decorate, they no longer exist as a benign object.
All my handmade cups are thrown on the potters wheel. They are bisque-fired at 1000°c, glazed and fired for a second time at about 1220 °c (cone 6). I have a developed a wide selection of dipping glazes.
After the glaze firing the ceramic decals are applied and the mugs are re-fired to 900 °c. The decals are then dishwasher safe and UV resistant, Food-safe and microwave-safe.
Each part of this intricate process is done by hand.
Any designs can be created the cups.
