Double Dip Mug by Peter Shire
Brown & Marigold Double-Dip
Made in Echo Park
Los Angeles, CA
We are truly honored to introduce ceramic mugs by Peter Shire's Echo Park Pottery. If you're not familiar with Peter Shire, he's known in the art world as a founding member of the Memphis Group. Peter's art — including sculpture and furniture, in addition to ceramics — has been featured in galleries and exhibits around the world (click here for a list!). Part of what we love about Peter's work is his colorful, whimsical and even absurd take on otherwise ordinary utilitarian objects (e.g. chairs, kettles, mugs).
Here in Los Angeles, and Echo Park, specifically, we're lucky to see and interact with Peter and his work at the local level. We live a few minutes from his Echo x Park Studio, and walk by it regularly en route to our local cafes and market.
Stay tuned for a Morning Rituals feature on Peter! Learn more about Peter and see his work on his web site.
Each mug is one-of-a-kind. Made by hand in small batches using a slab construction, and individually painted. Dishwasher safe, but wash by hand for longer life.
Loose dimensions: 3" x 3" x 4"
