Sian Patterson is a Glasgow-based potter. Sian's home and tableware is hand thrown on the potters wheel. This one off collection of seven mugs were painted by Mariella, she choose to paint with pure cobalt and chrome oxides. These are the main two oxides Sian has been using in different percentages and combinations to create different shades of blue and green glazes which she layers and contrasts in her pieces.

"The work is characterised by a formal purity and a restrained palette of unique glazes, often combined in subtle contrasts. How each individual piece feels to hold and to use is as important as the collection's appearance and visual coherence."
