Happy Spring Mugs!

 

Just listed these mugs on Etsy and I have to say...I just love them! They have such a great look. The body of the mug is unglazed and has a nice earthy feel, while the rim and handle has a soft, shiny glaze that is so soft and smooth. I may have to make a set for myself!

I have decided to begin blogging again. Now that I am "officially" an instructor at the brand new Clayton Community Center , as well as the Pottery Studio Coordinator. I will be posting information about the programs there, about my work, and all things pottery !
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned!
This is one of my newest pieces that I am handbuilding. Sometimes I need to take a break from the wheel and handbuilding has been very satisfying. This is high fire porcelain with Shaner's Oribe glaze fired in a reduction atmosphere.
