Handmade ceramic mugs
LULL | Handmade mugs
The Lull mugs are a collection of hand built mugs characterised by a hand crafted texture that presents two different effects on the outside and the inside of the mug. The outside of the mug presents a number of little nooks which capture the glaze in a beautiful way. The inside of the mug presents the bubble effect of the same texture creating this beautiful pattern to look at while drinking your morning drink.
The mugs can be purchased with the traditional closed handle or a more modern open loop handle for a more contemporary look.
This mug collection was called Lull as the word itself means 'a temporary interval of quiet or lack of activity. I am an extremely habitual person so I cannot start my day without a big cup of my favourite ginger and lemon tea. I find that drinking tea is a ritual as it calls for slowing down, holding the hot cup with caution and sipping it slowly, taking your time. Drinking tea cannot be done in a hurry and therefore by definition, it's a calming and relaxing activity.
These mugs were created with this slow, calming ritual in mind. The outside texture is meant to let your fingers land in the little nooks while the inside texture captures the attention allowing your mind to stay still while you gaze at the mesmerizing pattern.
The Lull mugs are hand-built with earthware clay, glazed and baked at 1050 degrees Celsius and therefore are food and dishwasher safe.

Since all of my pieces are handmade no two items will ever be the same. I hope you will appreciate the uniqueness of each piece.
