Karin Lorenc is a potter and ceramic artist.  She creates beautiful mugs and bowls and other tableware that she fires at high temperature to make them strong and durable for everyday use.  And that means you can wash them in the dishwasher and use them in the microwave.   I especially like the clean, elegant, modern feel of her white stoneware with brightly colored insides.  So that’s what I’m featuring today.

Stoneware mugs by Karin LorencSet of Four Stoneware Mugs, $128

These stoneware mugs are huge.  They hold about 16 ounces of something yummy.  So if you’re trying to get down to one cup of coffee a day, this is the cup for you.  They’re great for chili and soup, too.  This is the summer colors set.  You might also like these in mermaid.  You can also choose your mugs individually or in sets of two.

Stoneware bowls by Karin LorencSet of Four Soup or Cereal Bowls, $100

These festive cereal bowls are just over 5 inches in diameter and are 2-3/8 inches high.  So they’re roomy, but not so large you end up eating half a box of cereal with a quart of milk.  Karen has more bowls to choose from, including these nice nesting bowl sets.

You’ll also find salt cellar/spoon sets, garlic graters, and some other beautiful pieces for the kitchen and table.  So click on over to Karin Lorenc and check them all out for yourself.
