The Spark Cups are my painted poems upon a cup, with a bit of wonder and kindness stirred into the art for good measure.

In the spirit of Charles DeLint's words, "touch magic, pass it on", I hope my time in the realm of makers and poets, where I forge a bit of myself to the great body of collective work, is carried to you upon a cup. May whatever it stirs in you be passed on down the line.

Like prints of a painting, the cups that make up my “Spark Cup Line” are faithful reproductions of my originals. Designed in my Washington State studio, made in Thailand.

The wares are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe, as well as family and café proven strong.

Useful Care Instructions:

The bottom of the cups is porous and will absorb water during washing. It is best to make sure it can dry upside down completely before putting away, thus allowing all the water to evaporate from the cup to keep it in pristine condition.

ABOUT THE ARTIST, Cary Lane

Dedicated studio artist, in love with a fisherman, mama bear to two young adults, living 100% off grid on solar and hydro power for 26 years, dog rescuer, neighbor to an elk herd that roams the foothills of Mount Baker in Washington State, owner and artist of The Bowl Maker company, too many personal and collaborative art projects to count and always one or two in the hopper, adding to the spark and passing it on, sharing wonder by the cupful.

And then the dragon bathed me in fire. To my surprise, instead of burning up, I cracked open, like a seed that needs certain conditions in order to be ready to plant.

Time in the realm of story, where intuition is afoot and the great wheels of imagination and understanding are turning, inspires me.

A soul, just a moment ago dormant, is now wide awake and humming along.

I grew up in a safe circle of creativity and scientific wonder. My scientist dad and pianist mom gave me the time and paper to fill the kitchen table and floor with my paintings and drawings.At California State University Long Beach I found the ceramics department: a vibrant program led by dedicated professors and unified students. With ceramic sculpture I began my conscious adult life as a dedicated artist. Throughout my M.F.A. and various artist-in-residency programs, I discovered Bellingham, Washington, where I fell in love with a fisherman. We built our home in the foothills of Mount Baker, and home-birthed two children. Now I work as a mother and artist amongst dogs, cedar trees, and a close community. Art for me is a wonderfully fierce, necessary thing. It can not be separated from my being.
