Saturday Shelfie – grotesque mug

As an attempt to be more regular with my blog (famous last words) I am going to post the occasional “saturday shelfie” – that is, what I am working on currently in the studio (and a play on selfie).

Today I am putting the finishing touches on a custom order – a grotesque mug. The commissionee had a slipcast mug which he had for many years and dropped it…. the mug had sentimental value to him and he wanted another one and found me via Facebook!

This mug is not slip cast but hand sculpted, and I must say i did enjoy the process. It has been a long time since I sculpted a piece of work in such detail. I used to make dragons many years ago, so it was interesting to recall the feelings and skills of the past.

Maybe I’ll explore creating some more sculpture in the near future….

Have a great Saturday everyone 🙂
