Claire Dooley Ceramics - Seascape Mug
Crafted from porcelain, this mug has been wheel-thrown at Claire's studio in Meath. The suggestion of a coastal landscape is captured by using quick gestural brushstrokes and sea-inspired colour palette. Each mug is hand decorated by Claire and is therefore completely one-of-a-kind.
Simple and elegant, this mug is perfect for a comforting mug of tea.
Dimensions: 11cm tall x 12 cm wide (including handle)
All of Claire's porcelain tableware is dishwasher and microwave safe, making it suitable for everyday use and wear and tear.
PLEASE NOTE: All of the pieces in this collection have been made by hand and while every effort has been made to ensure that the pieces are as uniform as possible, some slight variations may occur. This is the beauty of hand-crafted items, each piece is individual.
"Working in porcelain clay, I make simple forms that draw inspiration from colours and patterns found in nature. Having grown up alongside the East Coast of Ireland. I am particularly inspired by coastal landscapes. Water corroded iron, pebbles, seashells and driftwood are all sources of inspiration for my work.
All the pieces are thrown by me in my studio in Co. Meath. I often add locally sourced materials to the work in the form of inclusions within a glaze or slip. Aside from giving textural and tonal qualities, the local materials give the pieces a sense of place, a connection to their environment.
I strive for simplicity in my work. I like my pots to have a tactile quality. For me it is important that the pieces I make are natural and quiet, but also well considered in their form and function."
