Snakes have perhaps the oldest mythological symbolism - fertility and life. I am petrified of them, so for me decorating my cups with a snake design symbolises me overcoming my fear and being mesmerised by their beauty, shape and patterns.
Each cup 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.
