Radical Act Fern Mug // Canyon Clay

48.00

About the Mug: Wheel thrown stoneware mug with slip decorated fern leaf design. The inside is glazed with a peachy pink glossy liner glaze; the outside is peachy underglaze and a golden orange stoneware clay body. I used a diamond sanding pad to sand the outside smooth and velvety to the touch.

About the Design: Ferns are as common as clouds here in the pacific northwest and make up much of the understory of the Douglas fir and redwood forests. My deepest memories of home are of glossy wet ferns lining misty trails through towering trees.

Hand stamped quote around the mug says “Self care is a radical act” which is an idea first talked about by Audrey Lorde when she said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” More about how radical self care strengthens communities right here.

Taking Care: This listing is for the piece pictured. It is microwave and dishwasher safe but as dishwashers are hard on ceramics, hand washing will prolong the life of your piece. It is handmade and as such each piece is unique and beautifully imperfect. Thank you for choosing handmade.
