Sunday Studio Visit – grotesque mug update

There’s not alot going on at this time of year in the studio, apart from recovering from Christmas & the New Year, however, regular readers may remember that a few weeks ago I posted about a custom order grotesque mug I made – the customer had broken their mug and wanted me to make a replacement.

The original post image showed the original mug (Left) and the freshly made duplicate (right).


Since then the mug has been glazed and fired, and i must say i am very pleased with it…. while it may not be my ‘style’ it has certainly captured the essence of the original mug, probably because I enjoyed the process of sculpting it so much. It has been quite a few year since I did any figurative sculpting and it did bring back an enjoyment I am interested in re-exploring.

And an added bonus – the original blog post, mentioned earlier, was featured on Pottery Making Infos December Clay Blog Review under Process & Techniques along with lots of other great articles, and is well worth a visit.

Well, that’s it for this Sunday – see you during the week 🙂
