I am a firm believer that ones coffee cup says much about what their personality is. Is it a chipped favorite cup given by a child. How about a plain, yet over-sized cup. Or do you strive for that elegant bone china cup.
It is certainly not the coffee by itself, it is also the cup that holds it.
Julia E. Dean is an amazing artist with beautiful pottery creations. Living among the beauty of natural in New York, Julia is able to take that nature and impress it into her artwork. The beautiful Woodland mug has leaves from trees and plants impressed on the outside of the mug and then stained. The inside of the mug is glazed for functionality. It is truly a stunning piece of artwork.
Durable so that I was not afraid to use it, yet delicate in features that it made me feel very outdoorsy while using it. One important thing to me in mugs is that they do not get overly hot on the outside when the coffee is in it. I don't care to burn my hands if I decide to wrap them around my mug. This mug passed the hand test! Perfect heat emitted.
A true artisan Julia says on her website
"The act of creating manifests a profound vulnerability within oneself. Drawing from life experience, visions, memories and emotion gives way to a resounding and poignant conversation with the deepest parts of one's soul. For me, listening well to this conversation gives space for the gestation and birth of images and forms that narrate my journey inward"
