I received an e-mail last December from and old friend about a commission idea he had for a Tardis Mug. A Tardis what? That was my response. I am usually pretty confident in my abilities to work with clay and create just about anything…even if it takes me a few tries. This piece, however, left me stumped until I was given a link to an image. This piece is inspired by the show Dr. Who. Since it was Christmas season, I was done taking on new commissions until the new year and my friend insured me that this piece was in no rush at all and I could take my time with it. Well, time I did take. Normally I request for a 6 to 8 week period to complete all commissions but this one took a year. His patience was wonderfully appreciated since I was pregnant and prepping for a couple of big shows, doing a lot of traveling, giving birth to my son, adjusting to motherhood and balancing studio work and then getting ready for Christmas! It has been a whirlwind this year. I wouldn’t have changed a thing either! With all that being said, the Tardis Mug is complete and traveling through the mail. Since my glazing technique is different from most, this is a non-traditional Tardis Mug. I hope it is enjoyed!
