These three cups were commissioned with one criteria: Alice in Wonderland themed.. and while this may seem like an easy enough thing to manage to a majority of people, an Alice enthusiast like myself has too many decisions to then make; should it be Disney 1951, Disney 2010, John Tenniel original illustrations, sifi, or one of many spin offs/inspired movies and shows, should I theme them with one character or all characters, or to not go by anything and put my own Alice inspired images on them. I chose to combine Tenniel and both Disney's with my own spin.. so without further ado, here's my first commission of the semester. All are thrown and altered porcelain with Amaco underglazes fired at cone 9 with a transparent glaze. Thanks for looking Smiley

The first mug incorporates Tenniel and Disney 1951 illustrations of Alice before and after the "drink me" bottle is found. The quote on the side "curiouser and curiouser" I thought went best with the double Alice image.
 


The second mug The Hatters' have TEA! uses images from both also as if in very intense conversation, I imagine, about "Why a raven is like a writing desk"


The last, and my favorite, uses all three most recognized images of the Cheshire Cat, (from left to right) Disney 2010, Tenniel illustration, and Disney 1951. I think this one works the best as I was able to reference all three ideas into a consistent image. This mug of course includes "we're all made here", my favorite Carroll quote that sums up every character in wonderland.

Oh it was so clever of you to combine the illustration styles.  I just love the little card suite details that accompany the quote on the final cup.

Great idea! My favorite is definitely the Cheshire cat... or all three as a set!

They're all so well done, but as well illustrated as they are, I think I'm even more enamored of your pottery skills -- the shape of the cups, the detailed base, and most of all those wonderful handles!
