Magic Mug

Magic Mug


Instead of using the potter's wheel, I hand build my mugs using slabs. My slab built work is textured by pressing clay into 12x18" sheets of linoleum that I have carved a pattern into. This allows me to add surface design without having to use color so I can maintain the natural translucency of porcelain. This also results in work that is more organic than the work made on the potter's wheel. Due to the nature of hand building with porcelain, most of the pieces are 'off round' and the pattern falls a little differently on each one. Working within the format of a 12x18" slab and the limitations of porcelain excite me and keep me engaged. 


I know it says Magic, let me explain: Each of my designs are given a working name so I can keep them organized in my head. This one was carved in April 2020, back when we thought the Pandemic would be a couple months long (sigh!). When the carving was finished, I realized that my sacred geometry pattern was really the Epcot Ball, restating how much my family missed Disney and all things social. So, this pattern is called Magic (for the Magic Kingdom). 


These mugs are approximately 4 inches tall and will hold 14 fluid ounces. Dishwasher and microwave safe. As there are several of this pattern available, the mug pictured may not be the exact one you recieve.
