About the Artist:

Mark Foster/Happy Cat Pottery

Mark's work is heavily influenced by tea. That is, it best exists in the moment; sharing a cup of tea with others can provide a reprieve by dissolving basic social expectations and structures. Tea is a means by which to make connections, with life, nature, and those around us. I hope that my work brings others to find their own tea practice. Each piece is derived from function and form, and balances between a modern, distracting, clean aesthetic and traditional Asian techniques and designs.
