Fun Family Time With Our Ceramics Prize

Posted on the 18th December 2018

The winners of our family “paint a mug” prize have had lots of fun at Vernon Park Café unleashing their creativity and having their works fired in the kiln at our dedicated ceramics studio.

The competition was to find the best fancy dress costume at the cafe’s Halloween party. You can see in the photos below how fab their costumes looked. The judges were Pure client Miranda and her mum. They chose Idris as the winner for his spooktastic skeleton outfit and scary face paint. Congratulations!

Family winners: Layla, Aliya & Idris (pictured left to right)

The victorious family had a great time decorating their pot mugs. They put a huge amount of creativity into the session and really enjoyed it. The family had so much fun they even painted over their designs and started new ones using a range of beautiful colours to create  their brilliant mug-shaped canvases.

The family then had to leave their mugs behind so they could be fired in the kiln.  It was well worth the wait as the firing brought out all the colours leaving the mugs with a glossy, durable finish.

We hope Idris and his family will all enjoy their unique and beautiful ceramic mugs for many years to come.

The kiln is used by clients in our ceramics studio to create many beautiful items including coasters, tea light holders, ornaments and more.  Click here to see some of their work on our ceramics page.
