It’s a funny thing, I probably watch fewer cartoons now that I’m an “adult” but I bet it’s not by much! There are so many great animated shows these days, and I’m not ashamed to say I love ’em.
One of my favorite current shows is Steven Universe. It is too adorable! And like my other fave show Adventure Time, even though the episodes are only 11 minutes long, they pack so much into them! Each episode is like a rich tapestry 😉
And no show can be any good without great characters, which Steven Universe has in abundance. Which brings me to the point of this blog post – I decided to start a ceramic mug series to pay homage!
So here are the ones I’ve made so far (and all are currently up in my Etsy Shop)
Obviously I needed to make a mug of the title character. Goofy li’l Steven!
Steven’s mother, Roze Quartz. I love everything about her character design.
What can I say about Pearl? Well, when I made her mug, I focused on her upright nature, a little no-nonsense. But with a fancy handle – both for her spear and because, as we know, Pearl is a fancy pearl.
Garnet’s mug was the most challenging. She has a lot going on. This mug can be enjoyed from many angles, this one highlights her start costume motif.
And lastly, good ol’ Amethyst. Short and curvy, and very purple. She’s got it where it counts.
And because I couldn’t resist, another Steven Universe inspired item: A Cookie Cat trinket box. ^_^
Can’t wait for more episodes later this July! Till then, I guess I’ll have to do some rewatching, and make new mugs 🙂 How about Ruby, Sapphire, Peridot and Lapis?
