These porcelain mugs by Sean Forest Roberts ( @forestceramicco ) are equal parts artistic exploration and science experiment. “The most important aspect of my studio practice is constant exploration, which is definitely derived from my background in science,” says Sean, who spent four years working in chemistry labs.
For the last three years, however, Sean has experimented with porcelain pots by layering different colored clay and handcarving them to reveal the colors underneath. “What’s so captivating for me is the ability to make functional artwork – cups, mugs and bowls that can be used and enjoyed every day,” Sean says.
Today on our IGTV channel, Sean shows us how he makes his handcarved creations.

There nothing like a stormy day out on the West Links of North Berwick with an all time crew. This was the second trip to East Lothian for me, but for my pops, best bud and his brother it was their first. I love when the golf is so good that the weather doesn’t even matter. Lots of smiles and laughs were had that day as we walked in the 30-40 MPH winds and rain. Whenever I end up pulling the trigger on a international membership, The West Links is right up there at the top of my list. I can’t wait to return. I’ll take a nasty day in Scotland over a sunny day in Palm Springs every time. #linksgolf #ineedtolearntohitmy1i #whyilovethisgame
