Hopefully some of you caught Angela’s Oui Pop-Up shop in OKC a few weeks ago, and if not she’s brought it online for a limited time, too. GET THEE TO IT!

Angela selected some pretty awesome things for her temporary shop, and I fell hard for the Peter Shire splatter mugs. Image below is one I took of it yesterday fresh out of its packaging! I love me a good mug.

Peter Shire is an Echo Park California based artist who was associated with the Memphis Group in the 1980s and whose work runs the gamut from sculpture to furniture. He’s also well known for his ceramic sculptures and vessels. I did a little poking around on the internetz to find out more, and enjoyed this short film on Shire by Eric Minh Swenson. Enjoy!
