My collection of handmade mugs began a few years ago, when I worked at a craft fair next to a potter. I still have the first handmade mug I bought, out of necessity (Oh yes, on that day tea made in a proper mug was a necessity): chipped, but still perfect.
While I love the one-off find at a market or op-shop, one potter’s work has captured my fascination; so much so that over half of my handmade mug collection has come from her studio.
Jeanette Zeis, while being clever, creative and a sweet person to deal with, was also recently interviewed as part of Etsy’s Featured Seller series. You can check out the interview, her blog and beautifully-photographed ceramics here.
