Mugs are my most requested commission and I love making them.

I hand-build almost all the ceramics I make. Making mugs provides fairly quick ways to test new textures and techniques; and experiment with layering washes, under glazes, glazes, and over glazes.

My favorite ones are modern and distressed, but I often get requests to make more traditional mugs. I deliberately add handmade nuances to them so you know they are unique and not mass manufactured.

Such nuances unevenly applied Shino glaze, hand painting under colorful translucent glazes, hand coiled feet, distressed under glaze, slip trailing, carving, and custom made texture.

The cat cups are a tribute to my childhood. My first art series, completed while in elementary school, were dog and cat cartoons.
