I started with the goal of supporting my daughters art with mugs made from her fantasy collection.
I like playing cards so I worked on that theme.
We started adding logo ware for coffee shops and recognition ware for food shelf volunteers.
Politics creates real opportunities too.
We started looking for other artists from various backgrounds to add to our offerings. A major step forward was adding the native American designs of Roy Thomas. We are adding Sioux art to the collection by Dorothy Eiken. Blasted Mugs is always on the lookout for artists working in many traditions.
Braille was added when my son suggested that the tactile aspect of sandblasted mugs would be a natural fit.
