Elementary, My Dear

Our world may be a complicated place, but these hand-thrown, ceramic mugs take you to a place of elegant simplicity. The four fundamental elements that were identified by ancient scholars― air, water, fire and earth―are exactly what Eric Hendrick and Noelle Van Hendrick utilize to create their handcrafted mugs. The husband and wife team shapes and decorates each one individually, allowing them to retain the unique details and variation that occur naturally in such a primal art form. The mugs are encircled by joyful, uncomplicated symbols of the four elements, and each one is finished with a "comfy nudge" for your thumb to rest in as you sip your favorite, primordial brew. Mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe. Handmade in Brookline, Vermont.

Now, from their home in southern Vermont, they make it all happen. They homeschool their three sons and create art for the world to enjoy. “It is poetic, I have raised my sons on buckets of love and cups of beautiful…”, says Noelle. “ I intend for it all only to get better and better….” There is an underlying mission to the work. A mission of cultivating world peace beginning at home, in the body, mind, and spirit. Eric and Noelle create and design goods that align with this mission. collection
