Each of these whimsically stylish mugs is hand painted by renowned American designer Peter Shire and is one of a kind. This ceramic piece represents Peter Shire's (b. 1947) current experiments in pottery and unique glazes. Part of the original Memphis Design group led by Ettore Sottsass in the 80’s, Shire has shown work in the form of sculptures, furniture and drawings around the world including Milan, Paris, Tokyo and Sapporo.

Due to the special production process, each mug is unique and will not be exactly as shown on our site.

Echo Park Pottery is a small cottage pottery studio in Peter Shire's hometown of Echo Park, Los Angeles. The studio was born out of Shire's experimentation in making sculptural tea pots in the early 70’s. Working with traditional hand rolled slab construction, the unique speckled collections began when Shire, unsure of what new glaze to make, began to splatter pieces with the extra color glazes on hand.
