Sanity Mugs have been a staple of my father's for as long as I can remember. The way I remember it, after making countless straight and normal mugs, my father was exhausted and frustrated. Lashing out at the clay, he casually (and with a little sadistic glee), slashed the sides of the mugs he was making, and instantly loved the imperfect, warped results. No two are the same, and they don't have to be, they're loose, free and a lot more enjoyable to use. The sanity mug for him, is a reminder to have fun, enjoy what you do, and not to take yourself too seriously. Trying to make a "perfect" pot often gets in the way of making something wonderful.
Sanity Mugs are usually $24 for the usual large size, and can be found in a variety of colours, deep copper reds, lighter greens and sometimes even darker blues and purple. If you'd like any, please contact us or drop into the studio~
