Ceramic Soup Mug

Working with clay is very ‘process oriented’ – this is the attraction. I work primarily from wheel-thrown components. I am only half teasing when I say that the clay keeps a person ‘centered’. Beyond the throwing – mesmerizing & meditative as that can be – there is the quality of mark making and creation of form. Working with clay for over 30 years, I have a decided interest in the quest for problem solving when making more complex forms or pieces. What fun to test one’s skills against this ornery & willful material.


This ceramic soup mug resembles the popular whimsical buckets from artist Sue Grier.  Perfect to hold a nice bowl of soup or chili on a cold day.   She creates these beautifully crafted soup bowls on the potter’s wheel, and alters them.

Watch Sue’s demonstrate throwing a hollow handle here.
