Part mug, part bowl, part whatever you want it to be. The Navel Gazer Mug is an invitation to go inwards and sip up whatever flows out. We leave it to you to choose your path with it in hand.
Created in collaboration with Days Eye, the mug is made using a nerikomi technique, which involves stacking and cutting colored pieces of clay. In this instance, the clay has been tinted with a vibrant cobalt in different saturations to help create a duo-toned marbling. The result is a unique mug that embodies the mixing and mastery of its maker.
ABOUT DAYS EYE:
DAYS EYE is a line of hand made ceramics by Barrie, Ontario based artist Heather Long. Created using coil and slab building techniques, a softly pinched texture is left behind in Heather's work, highlighting human touch and the beauty in imperfection. Elements of nature and play inspire these unique sculptural and functional clay works.
Measurements: W - 5", Height - 3"
Process + Care: Each piece is hand built using stoneware. Since the items are created by hand, each is one of a kind in size, shape, and colour may vary slightly from piece to piece. Food safe glaze is used on the mug. Hand washing is recommended to give the mug the longest life possible.
