You can choose today’s prize – for a chance to win, I just want to know which of these two designs would you prefer? Both were created before Ireland’s marriage referendum took place in May and of course, we know now that same sex marriage is allowed in Ireland but for a while, it was very much up in the air. The first mug (there is a handle, it’s just at the back) was inspired by the American Gothic painting so the sprong / pitchfork / graip comes from that, one man in the couple is a farmer and the other helps out!
And this is the other one, the woman on the left is the farmer, signified by her messy clothes, her best friend the dog and the chicken under her arm. Her wife or partner isn’t a farmer but yes, am sure she is capable of standing in a gap!
