Fantasize about adventures on the high seas while drinking from a handmade sea monster mug by Anja Bartels. Anja’s nautical surface designs are inspired by her childhood memories of growing up in a port city on the North Sea. Each wheel-thrown mug is decorated with sgraffito waves and 22-karat gold sea monster decals.
About Anja BartelsOriginally from Hamburg, Germany, Anja discovered pottery making while living in an intentional community in Virginia. The passion ignited, she returned home to study in the German Ceramics Guild. After completing a three-year apprenticeship with a master potter, Anja received her journeyman ceramics degree from the German Chamber of Crafts and Trades. She is now an artist-in-residence at Odyssey ClayWorks in Asheville.
Please Note: Each sea monster mug is individually handmade. Slight variations should be expected and embraced.
