Short Mug - Calm Waters


A handmade stoneware mug, thrown on the pottery wheel and glazed in a combination of silk duck egg and matt oatmeal, overlapping in the middle to create a reactive stripe.

The interior is finished in a shiny transparent glaze to make it easier to clean. The mug is low and wide and fits perfectly under a coffee machine. It has a loopy 'pulled' handle, that is super comfortable to use. 

Dimensions: approx. 10cm width x 7.5cm height

About Emily Doran Pottery 

I make and sell handmade pottery in a rustic coastal design. Everything is carefully made on the pottery wheel and fired in my garden studio in East Sussex, UK. Inspired by a love of the coast and sea my contemporary tableware comes in a range of glazes named after the seascapes they evoke - from calm waters to misty lagoon. I use a flecked stoneware clay that is wonderful to throw with and creates a beautiful speckle than burns through the glaze in the final firing.

I make intentionally small batches of pottery, working to be the opposite of mass produced factory tableware. I believe in craftsmanship and traditional skills. This means pieces are made slowly and intentionally, mug handles are ‘pulled’ and attached by hand, bowls are turned on the pottery wheel and everything is individually dipped in buckets of unique home-made glazes. My tableware is tactile and shows it’s handmade nature by leaving visible the making process - whether that be throwing rings inside a mug or finger ridges on a pulled handle.
