Mugs-A National Juried Exhibit

Mugs are a staple of any potter’s arsenal, and every body has mugs in there homes. Mugs tend to be the workhorses of the kitchen, from having coffee, to beer to whatever, they are objects to be celebrated.  Some mugs are made simply in form and decoration and some are complex and ornate, making each unique to their users preferences.    It’s these extraordinary  workhorse vessels that we want to celebrate with this show.
