Black Whale Mug
This mug is produced by Liza McDonald who grew up in New Brunswick on Washademoak Lake. After many years of being artistic and creative and living on White Head Island, she decided to study pottery. Liza commuted to NBCCD from the island every week from 2002-2004 and completed the Pottery Program. She opened a pottery studio on White Head Island in July 2004. As a hardworking Mom with two daughters, she also worked as a part-time potter and lobster fisher.
She opened a new studio in November 2017 in McDonald Point on Washademoak Lake. She retired from lobster/scallop fishing and is now working as a full-time potter. Her work is constantly changing with texture, additions, and altering perfect forms.
This beautiful pottery mug features a whale tail detail on the side as an extension to the handle.
