Suffolk Landscape Mug-Spring
These mugs have been a long time in development. Careful consideration and much feedback has been involved in producing something that is both functional and beautiful. A functional piece of art.
Spring- With the sun rising higher and the warmth returning, the fields and hedgerows start to burst with fresh new growth. The winter wheat and barley, white green, start to grow taller by the day. The hedgerows bursting into leaf between the yellow patchwork of oilseed rape.
These mugs have been hand made by Karl. They are decorated with coloured clay slips, carefully mixed to reflect each season. They are lined with a white durable glaze and have a transparent glaze over most of the rest of the surface. The coloured parts have been deliberately left unglazed to give a contrast in texture as well as to preserve the sharpness of the marks and colours of the slip decoration. This is still a very durable surface.
They can be used in the dishwasher and microwave.
