I was inspired to make the polar bear mugs after I saw “Frozen Worlds,” an episode of “Our Planet” narrated by David Attenborough on Netflix. The image of a mama bear and baby bear set against the Northern Lights is a reminder of the beauty of nature that is such a part of our Canadian Northern landscape. A majestic and poignant beauty, not to be taken for granted in light of the frightening reality of the impact of climate change on all of us, including these creatures. The artistic challenge with these mugs included the careful application and layering of the multiple glazes. Each time I make these, they turn out differently but they are all uniquely special!At the artist’s request, the gallery will donate $2.00 from this sale to the arts.
