Inspired by the raw earth that this vessel is born from. Clay that is taken from the planet below our feet, rich with soil to be dug, and gently guided into a new shape by human hands using ancient techniques that have been mastered over decades of practice. The mud then baked into solid, durable form in collaboration with the element of fire, becomes a mug ready to continue it's journey from our little studio here in North Queensland, into your lovely home.
Next Of Kin exists as an ever-evolving and shifting invitation, in the form of our beautiful ceramic wares, to allow your mind to wander into these wonderings - where do your everyday objects come from? How are you using them to make your life beautiful? How are you choosing to live in harmony with our Earth?
The original and most beautiful artist of life itself - constantly gifting us clay to play with, air to breathe, water to drink and beauty to be both crafted and appreciated.
This collection is a celebration of the Earth. MadeOf The Earth.
Wheel-thrown body, hand-pulled handle.
High fired stoneware (fired to 1280C in our solar-powered electric kiln).
Featuring custom created 'Of The Earth' glazes. (All Next Of Kin glazes are custom created and mixed by hand in our studio.)
As always, we hope that drinking from your Next of Kin mug is an experience that completely envelopes you in anappreciation for slow living and all those little things that we tend to skim over.
We believe in sustainability and the preservation of planet earth. In purchasing our ceramics, we encourage you to move away from fast-paced habits and single-use cups that only create landfill, and towards wholesome little chunks of time that are nourishing for both your soul and our planet.
