Mug of the month #1

>A new series.

I collect ceramics. It’s more of an obsession that a collection, but we don’t want to go there.

A mug a month will – conservatively – keep me occupied for 15 years at current inventory levels, so I’ll be selective.

Jane Hamlyn – master salt glazer, close to Living National Treasure status – drank out of this and said ” I don’t think that this pot could be improved on….”

It’s by Andrew van der Putten, a New Zealand potter and one of the founders of the sadly-missed Albany Pottery, just north of Auckland.

Bought at Crushed Pipi in Mangawhai Heads
