Salty Sea Dog Designs is the collaboration between the husband and wife duo of Blair and Sarah Dawes. Their ceramic partnership explores functional 3D animal designs with cheerful colours, animated expressions and whimsical creations. Their subject matter focuses on many animal forms including woodland critters, sea animals and mythical forms.
Although Blair and Sarah strive to create non traditional pottery they implement traditional techniques to create all of their work by hand. Each piece of pottery is first thrown on the potters wheel and then the 3D form is sculpted by hand. Blair and Sarah believe that each piece of pottery that leaves their studio has a personality all of their own.
Their pottery is adopted, not purchased and patrons are encouraged to name their new pottery friend because they become a member of the family and an integral part of the home.
And, in case you were wondering, these mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe!!
