Limited Edition Ceramic Tumbler

For each cocktail workshop, we are commissioning a limited edition set of ceramic tumblers by one of the remarkable artists here at Workshop Studios. Included in your gift bag, these gorgeous souvenirs are the perfect vessels to show off your mixology skills at home.

We are so pleased to be featuring Kate Husted’s work for this event. Kate’s vessels were instantly coveted when they arrived here at the studio. The beautiful, exposed grey clay of the exteriors appear like smooth cast concrete on first glance. Each one is uniquely carved with precise horizontal lines banding across the surface. A milky glaze in black or white wraps around the lip and fills the interior. These tumblers feel great in the hand and are insulated to keep your cocktail creations cold until the last drop.

One tumbler is included with your workshop registration.

Kate Husted is a Calgary-based ceramicist working primarily with the wheel. She designs small functional objects and sculptural vessels & lighting and aims for simplicity and refinement. Her work is typically rhythmic and unornamented, and, she hopes, useful and long-lived.

She’s been practicing since 2009.
