Yesterday , I was working on burnishing a piece of pottery for a raku fire at the Indianapolis Art Center and I wanted to stop by the gift shop and take a look.
They lady working inside the shop was so nice and helpful and I remembered what a nice place it was to shop at. A pair of earrings caught my eye (which I later purchased) and this Handwarmer Mug (what I am featuring today). Right away I was mesmerized by the colorful glaze and surprisingly perfect grip of the mug. It was the perfect size!
Since I am on a mug kick, I was wondering how it was made and very impressed by the style. I usually say to myself, "Oh, well I will just try to make something similar myself," but this style I cannot pass up (Do not get any bright ideas Etsians.... this is patented!). I like to collect mugs from other ceramic artists, so I need to purchase one (or more depending on Christmas gifts in the future).
These artists (Clay in Motion Pottery Studio) are so smart because they made both right-handed and left handed mugs! I know I will be purchasing several for myself and my family since they are heavy coffee drinkers! These are artists that come out for the local, but WELL-known Broad Ripple Art Fair in the spring each year, so I am sure I will be seeing more of them!
You can order right online, or support the artists, as well as the Art Center, by visiting the Gift Shop of the Indianapolis Art Center!
I would love to hear what you think!
