Penelope - Book Club Member


Meet Penelope! She is the forgotten melody in Peter Piper's tale. Though her brother gained fame for his pepper-picking prowess, it was Penelope who imparted the skills and secrets of cultivation. Her love for music was as enchanting as her green thumb, teaching Peter to play the pipe with melodies that danced among the pepper vines. Yet, history has relegated her to obscurity, a silent guardian of the Piper legacy.


The Book Club is a project started by Crisanthemum Ceramics and local artist Pam Tripus back in May 2023 as a fundraiser for Surry Arts Council.


Each face mug has their own name, personality, and story to tell. Plus each is equipped with their own personalized bookmark to tell their unique story! These mugs make fantastic gifts, especially for the avid reader in your life. Each mug is handmade and one-of-a-kind.
