Dragon Mugs are finally here! I'm very excited to share my new Dragon mugs with you! If you follow me on Instagram or my Facebook page you'll have already seen some photos of them. They've been in the works for a few months and I'm absolutely thrilled with how they have turned out...
Dragons are the backbone here at Teeth and Claws, they feature on a lot of my greeting cards, and I have a growing range of dragon art prints and more recently dragon coasters too! As an artist and creator I've been really keen to see my dragons on products and surfaces particularly three dimensional ones, mugs were a natural choice. I've always loved ceramics, and after a trip to the USA at the end of last year and spending a lot of time looking at the beautiful ceramics on display in the art galleries in Washington DC I decided it was time to get serious about making my own dragon mugs. As much as I would love to learn a new craft and make my own mugs and pots from scratch for my dragons to live on I have draw a line somewhere!
I contacted a lot of manufacturers for quotes and even researched getting my own kit to make them in house but it became clear that I really wanted something a bit more bespoke. So I got in touch with the fantastic Heraldic Pottery, in Stoke on Trent, who were keen to help me create my dragon mugs and offered the high quality of production I've been looking for. I visited them in Stoke on Tent, in the heart of the historic Potteries and saw firsthand the artistry in their manufacturing process, from the super detailed multi coloured screen printed artwork through to the talented team of skilled crafts people who decorate the mugs by hand, and also the fiery kilns and all the beautiful English Fine Bone China. I left absolutely inspired and I spent a lot of time tinkering with designs to get my dragons off flat paper and wrapped around (and sometimes inside) beautiful fine bone china mugs. I absolutely love the finished mugs, they really are very special.
Due to the handmade process each one of my mugs is unique, my signature bats also inhabit the mugs flying around inside the rim and dotted around elsewhere too. I also have a beautiful gothic bat mug too...
My dragon mugs are available now directly from me in my Teeth and Claws shop-
