Large Thistle & Honeybee Handmade Pottery Coffee Mug
I'm making these mugs in small batches, made-to-order. Please allow up to 14 days for production.
This mug is entirely artist made. It's was created in collaboration with local Durham potter, Joe Sink. When I first saw Joe's pottery I knew his gorgeous work would be the perfect match for my botanical paintings and designs. I love how Joe's pottery designs are humble and feel like how the earth should feel in your hands but are also sleek and modern at the same time.
Joe says this about his pieces, "I almost exclusively use all North Carolina clay. I like knowing where the materials are coming from and more importantly the folks who are working to bring potters a great product that we can trust. It is special to me that the clay I am working with came from the same place I have called home my entire life. "
This two-toned mug by Joe is then fired in the kiln a third time with my Three Thistles painting on the front and on the my little honeybee painting is on the inside of the mug. The designs are as permanent as the pottery itself and will never scratch or fade.
Mugs are approx. 5" tall with 3" diameter
Perfect for all beverages

The perfect gift for anyone who loves Hummingbirds.
A graceful hummingbird in flight. The original is created with alcohol inks. In person, you'll experience the intricate layers of translucent details that alcohol inks allow you to create. There is a lot of visual texture, motion, and emotion in this piece. I hope you love it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Glossy prints are available in different sizes

This design is also available in matte greeting cards.
