hedgepig pottery has a mug!

Have you met @hedgepig_pottery ? She is kind, creative, and a delight! I am always excited when we are at the same events. She creates beautiful and fun things. Repost @hedgepig_pottery (@get_regrann) – Yes, yes I did!!! My treat from @prairiefibrefestival ! Just looking at this mug from @chasingfirestudio made me look forward to all the warm teas and hot chocolate with marshmallows when our inevitable winter snow falls . Do I make mugs? Sure, but not like this cozy little piece !!!!! #pottery #ceramics #clay #handmade #mug #sweatermug Posted by Intagrate Lite

kitchener mugs

I have so very few of these wheelthrown pottery mugs with kitchener instructions, and they will be in Lacombe on Saturday! I'm working on making more, oh yes I am, but get them at #PrairieFibreFestival while they last! Then put your feet up, have a beverage, and finish your socks with peace of mind. ..#wheelthrown #ceramicsyyc #ceramics #plainsman #potteryforknitters #canadianceramics #AlbertaPotters #kitchenermug #kitchenerstitch Posted by Intagrate Lite

carving yaks

Carve, stamp, clean, trim. FRIDAY PARTY! Yaks, llamas, mohair, alpacas up first then some yarn bowls. The kiln is going to be working overtime this week to finish prep for #edmontonfibrefrolic because each piece gets two runs through the kiln. I love drawing my fibre animal friends on mugs. Collect one of each! #edmontonfibrefrolic #madeinAlberta #canadianceramics #albertamakers #ceramics #yarnbowls #makerlife Posted by Intagrate Lite

Pre-Orders for Knitted and Cable Mugs!

Did you miss out on the knitted ribbed or cable mugs? DM me to be put on our contact list when the next batch is out of the kiln in May! Reposted from @blackrosestitches – Today was a fantastic day, I didn’t buy much yarn at the @fibreshindig but I did get to meet some of my instagram friends and I snagged this awesome mug from @chasingfirestudio ..#fibreshindig #shoplocalyyc Posted by Intagrate Lite NOTE: If you’d like to be the first to know when our next mugs are ready in early May, you can fill out this Google Form with details about which mug style you like, the glaze colour, with your contact info. Your info is used for this purpose only. Each mug is created by hand, then fired, hand glazed, then fired again. It’s a looong process that is dependent on weather for clay drying, and each kiln firing is approximately 24 hours. We are hoping to have our next batch of cabled and kitchener mugs complete for the beginning of May 2019. Please sign up (if you haven’t contacted us otherwise) to be contacted first once they are ready. We will also have a batch ready for the Edmonton Fibre Frolic on May 24, 2019!

Knitted Mugs

I try not to have favourites. I don’t want the other mugs or bowls or buttons to be envious or feel unloved. Everything has a function, even if that function is to be put in the “Bad Day Box” for a future aggression-relieving smashing session. Some pots may be more attractive to look at and definitely feel nicer to hold but I can’t openly declare one better than another in front of the others. Maybe a button is a little off but that’s what makes handmade items so special and unique, right? Sometimes you can see our fingerprints in our work, and you can see clearly that our hands are making everything that you see in our online shop, at the markets we attend, and in the gifts that we give. Everything is beautiful in its own way. All of these reasons are why I snuck these mugs into the house, far from the others, to tell them how much I adore them. I fawned over them. I cooed at them as if they were baby animals. They thrill me. This experiment has been a complete and total success. Ribbed for my pleasure, indeed. We worked hard to make these knitted mugs, and they are 100% handmade here in our studio. They feature my own knitting that was molded for the slabs (and yes, I wish I’d blocked that sample a bit more aggressively). Dishwasher and microwave safe too! We will have this newly released mug at the Calgary Fibre Arts Fair in northwest Calgary on November 12 & 13 from 9am-5pm at the Triwood Community Center. Selection is limited so if you’d like something ribbed for your pleasure, come early and see us at our booth! Jason, myself, and Cheryl will be there to assist and either hook you up, or comfort you if we are sold out. I hope we see you there!
