Beautiful and functional porcelain mug by Laurel MacDuffie, with a soft blue/green celadon glaze. Celadon is a traditional Japanese glaze with a soft satin finish that ranges in color from white to blue, green, or yellow. This particular celadon develops some beautiful crazing, further enhancing it’s clean gentle nuance. Lined with white glaze on the interior, Laurel’s work has a warmth and weight that is nothing short of comforting. Strong and durable, her pottery is reminiscent of antique stoneware pottery, which may add to the sense of security one feels when handling it. Microwave and dishwasher safe.

“Clay is a sensitive material. It records every touch, and all that touch conveys. I use this responsiveness as a tool to communicate calm, and imperfection. Making pots, my wheel turns slowly. I stay present with the forming of each piece. Sometimes I rub the new pot to calm the marks of spin. I handle my pots a lot in their making, leaving a record of touch. I make my forms stable, noticeably solid. I make my lines irregular, like the beauty in nature. I try not to fix every mistake. Sometimes I try to make you laugh.”
