Rise and Shine Big City Mugs (Red)

48.00

I love a good sunrise ...and sunset. I'm an early riser. Early, like 5:00 am early, so I see the sun rise up over the horizon most mornings. A few summers ago, my good friend and fellow artist, Akiko Oguchi, invited me to do some sunrise hikes in the Columbia River Gorge. Let's just say it's a hell of a way to start your day! Now I'm creating my own sunrises on my mugs for you to enjoy.

These mugs are a collaboration between myself and potter Wil LaBelle. Wil throws the forms on the potter's wheel using an earthenware clay, then paints on a layer of white slip (a term for liquid clay), and then I paint the backgrounds and carve away the windows, sky and outlines of the buildings. It's quite the process, but I love every moment of it.

Each mug is unique. Variations are definite, but that's the beauty of handmade creations. Special requests will be considered for an additional fee. Get in touch; let's talk about it.

I do my best to have mugs made and stocked, but often times they'll be made to order. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. My tiny fingers can only work so fast!
