Ryan Beck- Original Elephant Art on Maria White Mug

This piece, “Strength + Courage” was up for auction today @mugs_for_moms , I etched and painted layers of glazes on a @mariawhitestudio porcelain mug. I chose elephants because they symbolize strength, protection, and wisdom - just a few of the many qualities moms possess. 
Ryan Beck original artwork. Created in Charleston SC in collaboration with Maria White Studio.
