This Friday, July 29th, at 10 a.m. we're launching a limited quantity of new Wendell Berry mugs in celebration of the Kentucky cinematic premiere of "The Seer: A Portrait of Wendell Berry."
Handmade and illustrated in Kentucky by ceramic artist David Kring , the mugs features a drawing based on the works of famed Kentucky photographer James Baker Hall paired with a Wendell Berry quote — "What I stand for is what I stand on" (hand-lettered by Colleen Newcomb of Letterland Glass).
Each individually crafted mug pays tribute to the prolific Kentucky author and environmental activist, with 50 percent of the proceeds benefiting The Berry Center (Berrycenter.org), a nonprofit organization headquartered in New Castle, Kentucky. The Berry Center seeks to put Wendell Berry's writings to work by "advocating for farmers, land conserving communities, and healthy regional economies." You can read more about its mission here.
Would you like an early opportunity to purchase a Wendell Berry mug? We'll also have a limited supply on hand for purchase during the Kentucky premiere of "THE SEER," 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at The Kentucky Theater, 214 E. Main St., Lexington, KY. Visit the event page for tickets and information!
Don't miss out on your opportunity to grab this limited-edition piece available ONLY through Kentucky for Kentucky! Thursday at the screening and beginning at 10 a.m. Friday in the shop!
