For the past three years, I've marked Pride Month by selling handmade pride tumblers, donating the all profits towards the wonderful London charity, The Outside Project.
The Outside Project is a homeless/crisis shelter & Community Centre in response to those within the LGBTIQ+ community who feel endangered, who are homeless, ‘hidden’ homeless & feel that they are on the outside of services due to historical & present prejudice in society & in their homes.'
I'm very happy to have partnered with Australian based queer / designer/ illustrator / tattooer, Jes Hoskin again. Jes has kindly donated her illustrations to the 2021 Pride Cups. Rather than hand painting the cups like I've done in the past, we'll be using decals this year. It's a cool process which allows a design to be printed on special paper, which is applied to the glazed ceramic and fired for a third time to adhere it to the glazed surface.
Choose from 4 designs - two of which we've seen before, two of which are brand new from our friend Jes!
Option 1 - the word 'RAINBOW' in a rainbow shape
Option 2 - a wee drawing of a rainbow
Option 3 - 'PRIDE' in a heart with an arrow
Option 4 - 'HOMOS' in a heart
For the last three years, we've been able to donate around £300 each year. I'd love to donate the same again or more this year! 50% of the price of the cup will be donated to the project. I will cover some of the cost of the cups with the remaining 50%.
Note: This is a pre-order! Orders are being taken now, and they will be made throughout the month and shipped off early July in two batches.
