This Brexit Mug By Lee Cartledge Is Completely Useless

The UK has officially left the European Union after 47 years of membership – and more than three years after it voted to do so in a referendum. The historic moment was marked by both celebrations and anti-Brexit protests.

North Yorkshire potter Lee Cartledge has designed a commemorative Brexit mug that cannot be used and therefore “sums up the whole Brexit negotiations”.

Cartledge, a potter at Bentham Pottery, designed the mug, which has the word Brexit cutting completely through its side, as a humorous response to Brexit.

“I’m not a political person really, but it is a political statement I guess,” said Cartledge to Dezeen. “It was more the humour than the political statement. It appealed to my sense of humour.”

“It was done as a joke, I had no idea it would attract this sort of attention,” said Cartledge.

He plans to make a limited edition of 60 mugs to sell commercially. “I don’t particularly want to spend the next few months making a load of Brexit mugs. I can just about stomach 60,” he said.
