I’m in love with this great mug I bought from Anthropologie yesterday!

—released as part of the Homegrown Monogramed Mug product selection by Anthropologie in collaboration with Australian artist Samantha Robinson. Extremely delicate porcelain construction combines with a generous bulb form to compliment that extra large cup of tea or coffee. The captivating decoration suggests a baroque reinterpretation of floral and faunal designs with a hint of orientalist fantasy—executed with a contemporary edge and a bold color palette. Brilliant! But the crowning detail, in my opinion, is the throwing rings on the inside walls—my absolute favorite kind of artist’s signature. Check out more of Samantha  Robinson’s work here or stop by her shop the next time you’re in Sydney!

“In like manner, as we listen to the wonder of music, we seek to understand the fountain from which it flows. And lo, we find at the source of this divine fountain not a god, but something far more miraculous–a man! A man who interprets the thoughts of the gods into human song. And it is this interpretative power of the great composer that raises his personality upon an immortal plane.”
— Henry Thomas
