As you can see, I’m delighted with my new mug from Debra Bures, of the blog From Skilled Hands.
Several weeks ago she asked for mug shots to go into her prize draw to win one of her wonderful creations. Despite my “Who’s the Daddy” entry, my name was not randomly drawn from the hat.
However, she had another draw shortly afterwards so I thought I’d attempt the sympathy vote after one of our favourite mugs failed to support one last coffee
This time I was lucky enough to win and my beautifully made, fantastically glazed mug recently arrived in the post this week.
Included with the mug was this wonderful tile, based on the local river as seen from above, looking down through the clouds. If you’ve ever seen my wife’s artwork [see the videos on this page] with her loves of blues and greens and organic shapes, you’ll know this mug and tile fit perfectly into our house.
Rattling around on the inside of the mug, which gave us a fright initially, thinking something had broken, I also discovered one of Debra’s touchstones
Although she is based in the village of Peninsula (pop.601), Ohio, she does do mail order. So if you are one of those who loves to have a favourite mug to drink your morning tea or coffee from as you slowly re-enter the world of the living, then I can’t recommend Debra’s mugs highly enough.
I’m completely thrilled with mine.
