Sheep Meadow Mug
This mug features Central Parks Sheep Meadow. Once a field that actually provided grazing for sheep, it's now the most bucolic setting in a largely not so bucolic city. Residents and tourists alike flock to this lovely spot. this image was taken before the many super tall, super skinny towers were built south of the park. 4.5" x 3" diameter
The City Mug series were part of a body of work that I sold on the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn as souvenirs. As objects I wanted them to speak of the city that they depicted, and be more than just some knick-knack that a tourist picked up on the street in the Big Apple. Now, several years later this mug represents part of a limited series.
