Martin Luther King Mug

 

£15.00

UK delivery £3.50 - Free delivery on orders over £40!

Our limited edition of 100 Martin Luther King mugs, by Bev Milward and Chris Chalkley, came into being in the days before lockdown.  Now his words seem even more poignant.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

An original 1970’s transfer known as ‘oatmeal’ is applied to a cream mug, and the text and ink spots are laid over the top. When fired the double layer causes the text to drop producing a quirky and unique element to each mug.

The Designer: Bev Milward Bev Milward's makers mark

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.

The Designer: Chris Chalkley Chris Chalkley's makers mark

Founder of PRSC, Chris studied Economics and Philosophy at Bristol University, drove buses, sold puppets and worked variously as a market trader, wholesaler, retailer and importer of china and glassware for over thirty years. Having worked as a wholesaler and retailer, Chris is well versed in traditional styles of ware. He tends to ignore all the rules and his pieces are known for their rough immediacy and challenging technique.
