Far Out!

These handmade tumblers from ceramicist Sean Forest Roberts boldly go where no tumbler has gone before. The galactic look comes from a technique Sean took six years to develop from scratch. He began with a single tumbler formed on his wheel, which turned into a plaster mold. Using a kind of liquid porcelain in this mold, Sean can create the swirling, stratified planets of color and dark blue expanse they seem to float in. The unique swirl pattern on each cup is a beautiful blend of human ingenuity and nature's spontaneity. The color won"t fade in the dishwasher or microwave, or stain from coffee, tea, or wine. Handmade in Orcas Island, Washington.

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

With a background in chemistry, it’s no surprise Sean Forest Roberts brings a love of experimentation to his work in the ceramics studio. He is constantly developing new tools or techniques that allow him to develop forms and styles seen nowhere else— including one for making marbled porcelain that took him six years to develop from scratch. He was drawn to it by “the underlying randomness in the patterns and structures of nature,” but to the layman, that simply means his creations are uniquely beautiful.

My favorite cup in the cupboard

It's smaller than my other coffee mugs but definitely enough volume for a decent cup. I found the porcelain thick enough not to get burned when I am enjoying a hot beverage.
