Product Details


The Owl and the Pussycat mug; this rustic folk art take on the poem is slab built by hand from various recycled clays decorated with oxides between multiple firings and then waxed after its final firing.

It is a one off .

The front features the cat and owl in their boat. The back shows the silvery moon above the wording “AND THEY DANCED”. The Piggiewig sits on a branch of the Bong Tree that forms the handle.

Due to the materials used this is an entirely decorative piece and is totally non functional.

Weight: 589 gm
Dimensions: 9 × 14 × 13 cm

I had been commissioned to create a mug for an existing patron. I confess I don’t normally make mugs but rose to the challenge, got into the zone and ended up making three wildly different pieces.
My client happily purchased his commission and one of the additional mugs (Adam & Eve) plus another piece.
