Canberra Bus Shelter Mug
A ceramic mug featuring our Bus Shelter drawing. The handle and interior are a bright orange and the outside of the mug is white with the image of the Canberra Bus Shelters and the words Canberra, Australia.
Designed by Clem Cummings in 1974 for the National Capital Development Commission, the iconic Canberra Bus Shelter is an enduring example of Brutalist architecture. Cylindrical concrete in shape, they typically feature two fibreglass window frames & a curved bench. The original shelters were fitted with clear polycarbonate in the window frames though these proved a tempting target for vandals. They remain only in some older suburbs but nowadays are treated with nostalgia & love as indicated by their presence in art, earrings & on mugs.
