Project Description

Design your own mug — a sketch, an inspiration photo, or even a tangible piece!

  

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to create a mug from start to finish. There is plenty of equipment involved in the process of making a mug that you probably don't have at home, but you can easily find your nearest ceramics studio to get started. Or, buy some clay and experiment!

As a first step, share a quick sketch or an idea of the form you'd like to create. Then, get your hands dirty!
