Ode to my mug

Wendy from Clark Jewellery over on Folksy sent me this lovely poem about the mug she recently bought! Hopefully it’ll inspire you during your morning brew.

Handmade mugs

I yawn in the cold kitchen standing still,
The garden dark bright orchid on the sill,
The water’s magic moment nearly come,
The kettle starts to rattle, hiss, and hum,
I fill my mug with honey milk and tea,
No one else can use this mug but me,
I see the potters hand in every turn,
Mug warms my hands but not so hot to burn,
We share these magic moments in the cold
This mug to me is worth its weight in gold

If you’re feeling the spark of inspiration or have got any photos of pieces you’ve purchased from Little Wren Pottery in your own home I’d love to see them and repost them on the blog. Just get in touch, thanks!

If you’re after a mug of your own check out what I have in stock at the moment over on Etsy or Folksy.

Pumpkin orange – strictly limited edition

I quite like experimenting with colour, its funny how often alternative colours or shades makes a piece which have been made the same look so different. I particularly love it at fairs when someone comes up to me and says ‘I’ve never seen such vibrant colours on pottery before’.

Some little part of me loves how colour can totally change people’s perception of what handmade pottery can be. With that in mind you may have seen me posting photos over on Twitter or Facebook of a certain orange shade.

From my favourites – the rustic kitchen

Kitchens are so often the heart of any home and for this selection from my favourites I’ve chosen pieces that I think have a real rustic streak. I like the natural tones brightened up with colourful tea towels.

I love that spark of colour and homeliness that even the smallest of accessories can bring! All these talented sellers are from the UK on both Etsy and Folksy.
