This sassy unique series of two handmade cup and bowl is perfect for any bird lover. The bird is said to symbolize freedom, they can walk on the earth, swim in the sea but they also have the ability to soar into the sky. They are free and many consider that they symbolise eternal life; the link between heaven and earth. I love to capture the beauty of their unique personalities in my drawings.
Each takes 3-4 weeks to create (making, drying and firing) and each design is created freehand to make each a little different to the next. Additionally your cup is created using a method l have perfected over time (thrown on the wheel for a basic shape – attach a handle – carving) to create that feeling, a weight distribution and that organic wabi sabi aesthetic "perfection in imperfection" vibe. All of these stages work towards helping your hands feel they are holding something that belongs.
All are made, packaged and delivered to you straight from my workshop in Vancouver.
