"Every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea." - Sylvia Earle
"We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depend on it... because they do."
Earle is a pioneering marine biologist and conservationist. Her campaign Mission Blue aims to create a global network of marine protected areas. These areas currently encompass 2.07% of the world's oceans.
More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year.
The design for this mug is based on the iconic woodblock print "Great Wave of Kanagawa" by Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. The water is strewn with plastic debris.
This mug is based on an original re-usable mug. Stokes Croft China highly recommends using this mug for your take-away drinks, instead of non-recyclable cups.
The Designer: Bev Milward
Bev Milward is an established maker working in porcelain. She is interested in the longevity and sentimentality of ceramics, how they infiltrate our lives and can be used as a tool for communication long after leaving the maker.
Her distinctive landscape collaged pieces have a strong narrative in common with her porcelain work. Her makers mark is a key which is featured on the front of the current British Studio pottery dictionary.
Material: English Fine Bone China
Dimensions: H 8.9cm
