Bluebird Mug

Description

A potter with a painter’s background, Vicki Gill says she “fell in love with clay at first touch.” For her, the tactile impression is as important as the visual impression, so carving and texturing methods form a common thread throughout her body of work. The bluebird on this mug is made by pressing into wet clay with a wooden stamp, and the branches are hand-drawn. 

Vicki has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Louisiana State University. She honed her pottery skills at Gaston College and at the renowned Penland School of Craft. She says her rescue greyhound, who comes to the studio with her every day, acts as her “sounding board” for creative ideas and inspiration.

Please Note: Each mug is individually hand-thrown and hand-drawn. Expect slight variations from the image shown.
