Kiss those winter-blues away cup give-a-way!




Well, it certainly is January! Grey, rainy, and dark, I tend to feel pretty un-inspired when January hits, despite all the ambitious list-making and goal-setting.  Nothing like a few orders that need to get finished to get me back in the studio though, and while I'm at it, why not a give-a-way, just for fun!  I have some lovely cups on the way.  They are sitting on the shelf, drying out and waiting to be put in the kiln this weekend.  I will be spending the better part of next week glazing my pots and thought I would grant the choice of one my lovely designs for a lucky blog reader, to thank you for spending time with me here at my 'think-tank' of sorts!
You know, there is nothing like holding a hand-made cup in one's hand.  Wheel-thrown and glazed with all the love I can manage, these cups are perfect for cold and hot beverages alike!  Each one is slightly different, some a little taller, some a little shorter.  They all hold around 12 oz, which, if you like your coffee nice and strong with a little milk like I do, is perfect for a morning kick-start.
So there you have it.  Please do comment below (one per person thx) and I'll choose a lucky recipient on Monday the 24th.  I'll have more cups in the shop by later next week so stay tuned for my shop up-date!

Oh how I love the new turquoise flower design. I have my new plate displayed on my bookshelf behind its patterns the cake plate and my favourite teapot - the poppies! Its a huge teapot, so perfect for having people over for tea. Hope you had a bit of rest over the holidays. Looking forward to seeing some new stuff!

I love these new stripes!! So great Heather. I saw your work at the airport the other day and was so excited, I'm sure the shop lady thought I was a little odd, haha.

What fun! While coffee drinking is reserved for the largest mugs I can possibly put my paws on, my Calligraphy pens would love to find a home in such a lovely cup - especially a stripey one!

I could really use a new cup for my morning tea. Can't get by without it since my mornings are starting at 5 lately. Ah, the joys of motherhood... Please pretty please!

Sign me up!

The cup I have from you is high on my list of favourites. I'd be quite thrilled to win another.

KellyL said...

Shameless plug for me, I was in a major car accident and still spend a big chunk of my day lying on my boring brown couch. One of your beautiful cups with the blue flowers filled with a warm drink would probably brighten my dreary days, but then again so would one of the smiles from my many children. . . No pressure :-) I do love your stuff!

sarah loertscher said...

Oooooh. My morning espresso would look and taste perfect in one of these green striped mugs. Then again my evening red wine would as well. ;-)

Clearly your designs and skillz are the best. One day I will own one of your pieces and maybe I'll start my collection with a striped cup for my morning coffee (milk please too!).
