Creative Ceramic Mugs

from The Wandering Crayon

I design creative ceramic mugs based on my original art. Some are based on photographic art, from which I select a 9×4 rectangle to wrap around the mug. These are large ceramic mugs (15oz) with wide D-shaped handles–which makes them more comfortable for me.

When using photo art, sometimes I modify the design. Here, I’ve kept just the leaves and made them a monochrome green. I particularly like this kind of design because the white ceramic itself is the background.

As part of my sanity routine during the pandemic lockdown, I drew faces with crayons each evening before lights out. I filled hundreds of pages with faces and, eventually, got pretty good at it. So, I’ve used some of the best on these big ceramic mugs (and also on tote bags). Later, I may try putting these on pillows or T-shirts. (Let me know, please, if this is something you’d like to see.)

The faces include a lot of variety. And I think this is one of their most enjoyable features. They are all very different, so they look good as a crowd. This one is not even human, but I think he has very kind eyes (so I just named him that). You may recognize the eyes as those that I use for my logo.

It took more work than usual to get from this photo art to artsy coffee mug design. But I think it was worth it. (I really like dogwoods.)

There are too many different designs to sample them here. You’ll have to browse the Artist’s Shop to see if there’s something uniquely appealing, for yourself or as an unusual gift.
