I get a lot of special requests. When it’s something straightforward like glazing a mug in a different color or remaking a sold item, I’m usually happy to oblige. There’s also the occasional inquiry where I’m asked to reproduce someone else’s work (sadly, there are people that do that) or to change one of my designs. Once someone wanted me to redesign the Whirl Serving Dish so it could function as a yarn bowl (what?). Things like that get politely declined. Other requests are pretty out there, but that’s a post for another day.

I think the one thing that I’ve been asked for more than anything else is a Pebble cup with a handle. It’s a completely valid question- “can you just stick a handle on that”? Unfortunately it’s not as simple as it sounds, so I’ve always declined. The curved silhouette of the original design is intended to nestle right into the hand. Adding a handle to that silhouette would look awkward feel clunky. I’ve made some small adjustments to the shape  and have come up with a handled version that I’m pretty happy with. May I present to you, the Pebble Mug:

It’s a little shorter than the original cup which changes the silhouette, allowing the proportions to work with the handle. It also feels nice and balanced- something I strive for with all my mugs.

Happy weekend ♥
