OMG – XL Bucket Mug

£17.50

The bucket mug was the first item that Keith ever designed in his Word Range. Originally inspired by the shape of the water bucket that Keith uses when he throws on the potter’s wheel, the shape has remained unchanged in over two decades. Perfectly sized to hold 350ml and dishwasher and microwave safe, these white mugs are stylishly hand-stamped with colourful words.

 

Like all the designer tableware in Keith’s Word Range, the words on the Bucket Mugs are hand-embossed using his distinctive retro typewriter font. The hand-finishing creates subtle variations in every item, making each one unique. As a result, any combination of ceramics from Keith’s Word Range gives a delightful insight into the master ceramicist’s craftsmanship.

Keith Brymer Jones is an expert ceramicist with over three decades of experience and has, more recently, appeared as a judge on BBC2’s The Great Pottery Throw Down.

Keith would consider himself a Londoner through and through as he was born and brought up in North London. Growing up, Keith lived with his mum and sister and had a great talent and fondness for dance, in particular ballet. In fact, Keith still uses the same determination and discipline he was taught in dance all those years ago in his working life nowadays.

It wasn’t until an art class in Keith’s first year at secondary school that he first touched clay and made himself a pottery owl. He loved the malleability of clay and the escapism that he felt manipulating it and that’s when Keith was hooked on ceramics and knew he wanted to be a potter!

The Word Range is a collection of super white porcelain ceramics which feature a coloured, hand-stamped word in retro, typewriter font. The Word Range originates from Keith having dyslexia growing up and initially viewing words as shapes so considering them perfect as a design concept to decorate ceramics. The first word that Keith ever stamped on ceramic was ‘Love’ as he thinks it’s the most important word however his favourite word is ‘hot’ as he likes its visual symmetry. The first item in the Word Range was the bucket mug which originated as a replication of the shape of the water bucket that Keith uses when throwing on his potter’s wheel. The bucket mug remains unchanged in over twenty years and has been joined by plenty more products…bowls, egg cups, plates, espresso cups and vases amongst many more. The Keith Brymer Jones Word Range is now a successful, award-winning brand which is distributed and sold in over forty countries and has a large, loyal following.
