This carved mug demonstrates perfectly how Robynn Storgaard's rejection of ornamentation emphasises the forms and materials of her ceramics. This cup was thrown on the wheel and made using locally sourced Scandinavian clays, developed and refined in Robynn's studio. The mug is very tactile, with interesting ridges that reveal the hand of the maker and display the artistic process. The smooth texture results from Robynn's use of one of a number of glazes that she has adapted from recipes acquired from friends and mentors over the years.
Imperfections are embraced in Robynn's objects, which are made to become more beautiful, valuable and meaningful to the user over time and through use. This refined and organic mug will be a joy to drink from and remind you of the importance of slow-living.
