These mugs are a commission. The shape was described with hand gestures to suggest cradling a warm cup of tea.
Not much to go on, but I understood the concept. I then just made shapes on the wheel to fit my imaginings of what was wanted.
Black and white glaze was requested. I don’t use a glossy black, but I do use a warm black/brown on my figurative sculptures and so decided to try that.
The client was really happy. That is a big relief and also a real pleasure to have got it right.
