From J.D. Cotton and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda, for all my caffeine-dependent horror writer friends.
“These scary mugs I make are one of a kind. Working in clay is the best since it combines several different “crafts” – throwing on the pottery wheel, sculpting and the final process, painting. All of which I love to do, especially with my background as an illustrator. After discovering pottery approximately 15 years ago, I’ve been hooked on it.
Originally, I was most inspired by those primitive face jugs that were made down south in the 1800s. My first few face mugs were similar in style which have since evolved into these more detailed pieces.
I sometimes refer to a photo image or whatever pops in my head. I love details and include a lot of it in my work – down to the wrinkles and pores on their faces.”
