Lovely Town Mug: handmade with white stoneware clay, thrown on pottery wheel. Original design drawn on piece, painted with underglaze with delicate hand carved details.

Lovely Town is love letter to my neighborhood. In the early stages of the COVID-19 lockdown, I spent lots of time walking through my neighborhood and was moved by the all the wonderful things my neighbors were doing to support each other. Optimistic messages written on driveways, teddy bears in windows, birthday parades with handmade signs. We were all quarantined & scared, but the mood felt hopeful. Through my work I am inspired to spread positivity into our shared world, and have created a whole series of ceramic pieces and paintings with this imagery.

This listing is for one mug, approximately 3.75”tall x 3.5”wide and holds 12oz of liquid

Glaze is food safe, ok to use in microwave or dishwasher. But to protect and maintain finish and surface decoration, hand washing is best.

If you are in the Binghamton NY area and would like to arrange a local pickup, please mention that in the messages to seller and I will refund your shipping cost. Thanks!
