Ken Martin Pottery - Hobbit Mug
I have a long relationship with Ken and his wife Gail (who makes our origami earrings!). I first met Ken and Gail at the most amazing farmers market in Waitsfield, Vermont. I wanted to buy Ken’s pottery for the shop, but he was reluctant to sell to me. I bought earrings from Gail year after year, but year after year I would also go to VT and beg, tease, and beg some to buy Ken’s pots. One year, I finally just said, “why won’t you sell to me?” And Ken said, “I don’t want to ship it”. “Well, why don’t I take it right now?!?”
I have visited their lovely home in Bristol, and at least once a year drive up to collect his wares… and Gail’s. I adore this couple and cannot wait for them to come visit me someday.
These little ones are called hobbits and perfect for an espresso or a little cup of wine. Little kids always pick these up and pretend to drink tea with them, which makes my heart melt a little.
Hobbit mugs vary between approx 2.5-2.75"
