Scenic Stoneware

Outside artist Alan Yarmark's studio there's a spectacular display: the wide, reaching Sangre de Cristo mountains. He uses these views as inspiration for this remarkable, detailed mug. Starting with layers of rich glazes, Alan dips the stoneware piece, leaving organic "dripping" edges and a raw center. Next, he transfers a rendering of mountains, lakes, and evergreens to the unglazed band. The result is this rustic, eye-catching design that makes a memorable housewarming or birthday gift for nature lovers. Handmade in Villa Grove, Colorado.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in Colorado

Pottery has been Alan Yarmark’s passion for over thirty years. The Sangre de Cristo mountain scenery that surrounds his Colorado home inspires him to capture the natural beauty of the landscape in his pottery. Not content to represent nature through layers of glazes alone, he combines a form of printmaking with hand-built stoneware to create a more naturalistic effect in his work.
