Good morning, lovely ones! There is nothing quite like the gift of art. Art is one of the most inspiring vessels for creativity. Art tells a unique, one-of-a-kind story, that only the artist can tell. This glorious pottery mug, handmade by Professor Jill Brugler, was sent to me this week by my friend Charles Blim, owner of the Charlie B Gallery in Nevada. Charlie is an arts enthusiast and extraordianry advocate for artists!
He mug hugged me with this gorgeous drinking vessel in my favorite shade of lime green. Its beautiful design is just….wowwwww…I am at a loss for words. I absolutely love its bright, bohemian, and marbled look. The marbling reminds me so much of tie dye, one of my favorite things. Dishwasher safe, too! Charlie has created a movement of gifting people with pottery mug art, created by local Nevada artists, from his gallery. He will randomly gift a postal employee, gallery patron, and even gifts complete strangers, with a mug masterpiece from his gallery. Not only does he light up the day of the person he gives a mug too, he is also getting the beautiful work of his local artists out into the world. The world needs more people like Charlie. Supporting the arts is of crucial importance, and especially now, more than ever before.Without art, life would just be blahhhhh. To me, art is life, and life is art. My grandmother was an artist. She taught me so much about life through art. One time when I was kid, she painted a mural of a giant bear staring up at the stars onto the entire side of a van. It was a masterpiece. When she painted faces, you would see yourself for the first time. Art pulled her through the Great Depression and then some. And art, coffee, and this spiritual drinking vessel shall get me through this great political depression 🙂 While on the topic of art/ists, I thought I would also feature this gorgeous mug with a Tiger’s Eye origami resin bowl, handcrafted by artisans at Lawrence Essentials. The colors in this handcrafted bowl are so stunning when the light hits it just right. Amber lights are just so sooooooothing & love it paired with my new Brugler mug ;)))
Some of the greatest masterpieces have been made with an artist’s own two hands. It is remarkable to think about the time, the stories, inspiration, brilliance, patience, and dedication it takes for an artist to create a unique work of art. There will be loads of morning medium roast Kona Hawaiian coffee & afternoon green tea sipped from this lime green goblet of goodness. May Charlie’s Giving Cup inspire fashion/jewelry design and lyrics! With <3, a Professor Brugler lime green goblet masterpiece & Kona coffee, there is nothing that can’t be conquered! :))) Thank you so much for the mug hug, Charlie!!! Godspeed to Charlie’s Art Movement! As much as he supports artists, we can also support him by following him on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram! You never know, he may just #MUGHUG YOU! Much love!! ~Kelle ❤ ❤
