Follow Your Bliss Large Pottery Ceramic Mug

"Follow Your Bliss" I thought: "How Selfish"!
Silly ME!!
I have since come to understand that the pursuit of Bliss is not at all about being self-centered, it's not about the little "me, Me, ME" that is in my head and is constantly searching for "things". True BLISS is about the connecting and awakening to the Spirituality {Divine} that lives inside of me, that lives in the "Heart-center" of ALL of Us!! Following that Bliss, that Divine Spirituality, however it looks to each individual is the only Life Path that brings True Peace and Love and Joy and all the things that really matter.

"If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be." —Joseph Campbell

So GO Ahead.......
Follow YOUR's a Phenomenal Journey!!!

This is a Very LARGE Wheel Thrown Mug that has been hand stamped with vintage Floral textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!) for the Floral images and I used Antique Wood Letterpress stamps for the words: "FOLLOW YOUR BLISS". The inside of the Mug is painted with 3 layers of a Gorgeous Turquoise, has my signature black swirly-cue, and it has been glazed, so it is beverage/food safe! I have purposely left the clay unglazed on the outside, but it has been stained with a food safe Jet Black and the stamped design is highlighted with colorful glazes. It is such an awesome textural sensation to hold the cup and rub your fingers across the indented letters/flowers, plus it visually looks really cool with the glazed inside and handle which is a Bright and Blissful Sun-Shiney Yellow and I wrote the word "EXPLORE" in black glaze. The bottom of the mug is signed and dated by yours truly....

**The finished mug holds 24 ounces of whatever liquid and stands 4 1/2" tall and is about 3 3/4" wide at the top, not including the handle.

*´♥.•NOTE~Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish, not a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on....that's what makes this Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!
This Wonderful Mug is such an inspiring and upbeat way to start your morning, lift your afternoon and/or relax and reflect with in the evening.
What a Unique and Wondrous gift for a someone who is Embarking on a Bliss-Full Journey of Self Discovery, or Yourself!!
