Ceramic mug designed and made by Lily Pearmain 

Lily hand makes and glazes her pieces in her South London Studio. Each piece is a one-off so is totally individual. 

Based on the a traditional Japanese 'takotsubo', this shape of pot has historically been used to catch octopuses. When left at the bottom of the sea, octopuses climb in for shelter and can easily be lifted up and out of the water by fishermen. 

This pot is hand glazed by Lily in her unique brushstroke glaze - and is also hand dipped - resulting in her fingerprints being left behind as a totally unique design detail which we love. 

"Good pots are going to be used and loved and cared for, they're going to find their way into people's daily life and find meaning and purpose through that." - Lily Pearmain

Product Details

Lily Pearmain is a self taught potter living and working in London and has been creating her functional wheel thrown tableware for four years. Lily emphasises that her work is ‘skills and materials driven’, allowing herself to be led by the clay and potting wheel she works with - claiming that she is not a designer, but a maker. She draws her inspiration from British studio ceramics and the desire to make beautiful and strong pots.

Lily sources all of her clay from the UK and is mindful of using ethically sourced glazes for her pots using materials from the UK where possible. Each of her pieces are hand thrown and glazed. Lily hand dips each of her pieces, leaving her fingerprints behind as a totally unique maker's mark.

“Good pots are going to be used and loved and cared for, they're going to find their way into people's daily life and find meaning and purpose through that.”
