The spirit of the wandering mug captures my imagination in a way few other things can. I love collecting artist made mugs and knowing the love and attention that went into making them. I love to choose a mug each morning and picture the process of the artist who so carefully created it. There's a connection between the creator of art and the purchaser, but the wandering mug feels like it amplifies that connection, allowing a string of individuals to connect through a single piece as it passes through different lives and different homes. I would be greatly honored to host the wandering mug for a while, allow it to collect a bit of history here with me while I write at my desk, and then pass it along to another person.
