Mugshot Monday

Here's another very simple but pretty mug. I posted a similar one a few weeks ago, this is just a different shape. It's still Standards Brown Speck clay and Stan's White glaze fired to cone 6 in oxidation.



To me, it is just simplicity. I could hold this mug and enjoy a nice, warm cup of coffee while relaxing in the morning. Years ago I used to read a newspaper while having my morning coffee. Now I'm a little more tree friendly so I get my news from NPR and on-line but this cup brings me back to Sunday mornings with the New York Times.

Where can you find some simplicity in your life?

New Pots

These pots were inspired by ancient pottery that was made before people used tables. Back in those times it was better to have a pot with a round bottom because it would sit on the ground better and was actually less likely to tip over. That makes for a gorgeous curve and shadow at the bottom of the pot.

Soda Fired Pots


Today we use tables a lot and most people will not like a pot that easily rolls off the table so my challenge was to make that shadow and line without showing much foot. I think these came out pretty well.

  2. beautiful, they look like they would rock but not tip over; are the upper pots fired or are they green, they look like bean pots
