Thanks to my glamorous assistant Mr H, who did the honours drawing a name out of the hat (actually a nice handmade bowl), so drumroll please…
The winner is: Kelly, who said this
“I bought a mug from you for a close friend to have as her mug when she comes over to us; sitting, drinking from it has often prompted conversations about the value of the unique, of the crafted and of the value of appreciating a singular object and the process by which it is made and by which you come to have it. A featureless, anonymous mass produced item would never lead us into such reflection. And it is just lovely to hold and use, so thank you.”
Well done Kelly, I hope you will enjoy your mug – and your musings! Please get in touch to arrange to get your mug.
Thanks also to everyone who shared their comments. It was surprisingly touching to hear more about what this kind of work means to the people who end up living with it.
