a ceramic hand thrown tumbler made in our hometown of cincinnati.
this is an exclusive drawing that Linnea did just for our shop! it's her artistic version of our secondary logo! we love it.
we measured the smallest cup and it comfortably holds 12 oz of liquid (but most of these tumblers can hold a little more).
the desert tumblers have a marbled clay effect. the marbling involves 3 different clays mixed together and a different temperature firing in the kiln - so the extra effort involved in making these beauties is reflected in the price. the marbling makes a different pattern for each tumbler, making them one of a kind pieces.
They have a perfect indent for your thumb to rest comfortably in.
These mugs are high fired making them all dishwasher and microwave safe.
Linnea, the artist, hand draws each illustration and hand throws each ceramic piece. we love supporting the artists in our city.
made by Linnea Campbell Ceramics - more about their work in their own words:
The natural world, insects, and the organization of their habits and communities inform and inspire the process of Linnea Campbell's work. The organic life around us is a direct source of relation back to our lives. The most microscopic organic life is also what essentially allows us to exist and sustain our own lives. Organization and habitual routines are a big part of our daily lives, and seeing that happen in nature excites Linnea and motivates her work. She is specifically drawn to the ecosystem of the soil and, specifically, the role of the microarthropods in growth and decay. They work methodically together repairing and preparing the soil to nourish plant life, which in return nourishes our life. Linnea's work aims to shed light on these tiny creatures and the large impact they have on our world.
