Potter Nick DeVries hand-thrown funtional and beautiful round mug with comfortable smooth handle.  This piece features Nick's matte black glaze over tan on the exterior and gloss black glaze on the interior with terri-cotta clay.  This piece also has a unique bird imagery. Nick's pieces are one-of-a-kind and sizes do vary from piece to piece.  This piece is @ 3.25" tall by 5" wide.  Microwavable and dishwasher safe. Price includes shipping to the U.S.


Working primarily with wheel-thrown and than altered porcelain clay, Nick creates gorgeous controlled forms finished with matte and ash glazes.  Architectural details are his hallmarkets.

Beneath the organic, impressionable and sometimes serendipitous nature of working with clay, he controls the overall design and aesthetic appeal.  Where a form changes, where the body curves, and how the glazes might react are always on his mind.


His work is functional in all ways, a cup is meant to be held and used, but all of his work also serves a dual functionality.  A cup, a vase, or a bowl may serve a purpose, to hold water, flowers or to serve food.  On a shelf these items serve us in other ways, visually and aesthetically.  This is an important aspect of his work.  Making pottery that functions as beauty as well as utility and enhances the many parts of our daily life.
