Celestial Mug

CA$ 40.00 CAD

What is so special about this mug? It just brings me into dreamland - a land of wonder, and delight. Celestial refers to heavenly, or what we would see in the sky. These colours that you see are not just colours in the sky, they are symbolic of the beauty of the soul of Mother nature. Since we have also emanated from the same source from which every living thing emanates, these colours also symbolize the beauty of our soul. The vibrant colours of this mug remind me of aurora borealis, known as northern lights. The rich colours of purple, blue, green, aqua are just mesmerizing - just like the Northern Lights. It is delightful to see the dancing colours and shimmering curtains moving gently in the night sky - a truly amazing spectacle, indeed.

The Story Behind

When do you see a rainbow in the sky? When the sun shines after a rainfall. What message does that convey? Whenever there are difficulties or challenges in life, one must remember that this too shall pass. The good times will return.

I created this Celestial Mug with those thoughts in mind. I wanted to create something beautiful, hopeful, and uplifting. How do you feel when you look at it? What feeling would you have when you drink out of it?

I have been experimenting with various glazes in an effort to get this effect that reminds one of the northern lights. It has been a long process of testing and not getting the desired results. Finally, I feel this celestial mug really does look like the heavenly sky that exists as the Northern Lights dance across the sky.

This mug has layers upon layers of overlapping glazes. The miracle happens when the glazes melt and interact with each other. It creates the depth while giving an amazingly beautiful effect, just like what one would see in the sky when the Norhern Lights put on a show.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
