These functional/sculptural hybrids were influenced by my desire to take my functional pieces to a new aesthetic level. As I have developed as a potter I am continually discovering how great it is to treat my forms as art and not craft. These pieces are a celebration of functional forms becoming increasingly expressive. They have retired from their role of holding a beverage and have earned the right to be strictly sculptural. I encourage you to see these mugs as more than a handheld containment for fluids, but rather to learn from their shape, read their colors, and listen to the message of these sculptural/functional hybrids.
