A note from the artist : I am a Welsh ceramicist and graphic designer, born and raised in Eryri (Snowdonia). Currently residing in the foothills of Cadair Idris and working from my converted barn studio, I'm creating art inspired by nature and folklore. These mugs are love mugs. An ode to the Welsh patron Saint of love , Santes Dwynwen. January 25th is the day that carried (love) is celebrated here in Cymru.
Each of these pieces are hand thrown, hand carved (sgraffitio) and glazed by myself. The clay body is a toasted red stoneware, fired to 1260°C, which means the unglazed ceramic is vitrified and completely waterproof. They are dishwasher and microwave safe, but I personally always wash my pottery by hand with warm soapy water, which will prolong the life of the pot.
Beautiful, functional art that will last many lifetimes!
