For a while, I lived in Brooklyn, NY. Not in the hip, happening Brooklyn most people think of these days. My neighborhood was a bit removed—geographically and culturally—from the metropolis many think of when we think of New York City. Part performance art pieces, part social experiments, my Art Carts were public transit friendly, mobile pottery delivery devices that I designed and built to transport and sell my pots in NYC. Often, I would often set up near other street vendors, selling souvenirs and art that was not made in the city. So I started making City Mugs, as a response. They began with pictures of the city I had taken over the years. I began experimenting with them, making decals, and applying them to mugs. What really drove my interest was nostalgia. In capturing these places and placing them on my mugs I hoped to provide an opportunity to reminisce. Either of the place depicted on the mug, or of the time they met a potter on the street in New York City. I am offering the last of them from that time, and place here, and now.
