The National Landmark home of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the Carnegie Mansion was built in 1903 by Scottish-American industrialist, Andrew Carnegie. This mug features an etched drawing of the English Georgian country-inspired home. Nicole Aquillano is a skilled studio potter who specializes in custom architectural ceramics. Aquillano etches each image into porcelain clay with a knife and inlays a black underglaze. The high temperature of the kiln combined with a clear glaze overlay slightly blurs the drawing, much like a faded memory.
