Project Description

Jerry Mug

Resembling the style of a lovingly polished classic Chevy, “The Jerry mug” is inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s series “Comedians in Cars getting Coffee” – which revolves around the ritual of drinking coffee, whilst matching his featured guest with the style of car they travel in. Shown here in Surf Green, Harvest Gold and Larkspur blue, with ivory and platinum trim. Hand-wash with care, not suitable for microwave.

300 ml capacity x 140 mm high


I design, assemble, glaze and fire each piece in my home studio. I make all my own molds from hand-sculpted shapes and found objects. These form the various components that come together to make one mug.

I use a porcelain clay slip and mix my own colours using stains and some commercial glazes and lusters.

Each piece takes 3-4 hours of hands-on time as well as 3-5 firings to complete. Because my mugs are 100% handmade, no two are identical and slight imperfections are part and parcel of each piece. Each mug is fired to 2160°F (1185°C) in an electric kiln and designed for functional use with food safe glazes; I recommend careful hand-washing to avoid accidental breakage.

The mugs with metallic lusters, in particular, are not dishwasher or microwave friendly.
