The mugs came about after meeting Victoria Petchey at artgallery box in Felixstowe. She was having a film themed month. I had recently watched all of the Lord of the Rings films with my eldest and realised this was something that I could do. I looked at the shapes and colours that are in the hobbit pub at the beginning and end of the film. I used these as inspiration for making the tankards that you see here. the shapes and colours are similar, but my own interpretation of what had been originally created for the films. They hold on average more than 500ml. There is some variation as they are hand thrown. Also the colours are random in their design and all tankards are lined with a white glaze.
