M, m, m, m, m, m, m, m, Mug Time

It’s coming up to firing time so that makes it mug time! I always like to put mugs in the wood kiln and I like making lots of different ones.

This time I went for two shapes,

but lots of different ways of decorating.

It takes a wee while to get the head and the hand back into the swing of it but then by the time I got to the end of my 18 mugs I was wanting to carry on.

Amazing how much love you can put into a mug.

I love making mugs. I don’t want to ever not make pots that people can engage so closely with. They are so intimate. You cup them between your hands, you snuggle them, cradle them.

You put a mug to your lips, numerous times a day.

Mugs are a huge part of most peoples lives so why ever should I not make exceedingly special mugs?

    Andrew loves the one that is the same shape as the bottom one. He especially reaches for it when he’s had a rough day.
    Hand thrown is so personal and it is always special, especially when they are as beautifully made as yours.

    I agree Hannah. Depending on my mood, I grab a specific mug….everyone needs a variety just for that reason. So make lots of mugs! And these are all so lovely. :)
