Home Comforts Mug
The Home Comfort Mug is made from a flat piece of clay textured front and back with a clay wallpaper pattern, with a hand-drawn horizon and a small child-like house with a glossy red heart. Then a wash of purple and blue is applied before the finish with a food-safe glaze. The conical-shaped mug has a slim rounded handle to sit gently in your hand.
“I love to use a line or quote that strikes a happy chord in your memory; the little house and heart link to the phrases I’ve chosen for the ‘Home Comforts’ range are those we’d hear throughout Ireland and some farther afield…however they do feel intrinsically linked to my home.”
The lacy wallpaper pattern has a nostalgic feel. This nostalgia gives a homely and familiar feeling combined with simple utilitarian forms designed to solve modern problems and suit contemporary lives.
Each piece is carefully wrapped in eco waffle paper ‘bubble wrap’ and a branded gift box before wrapping for the post to ensure its safe journey to you.
My ceramics are handmade and produced using vintage wallpaper moulds and hot metal type in my 250-year-old studio space in Dundalk, Co. Louth, Ireland and making them handmade and 100% Irish.
