New mugs

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.

  1. Hi Carol:
    Good -looking mugs. I look at mugs all the time when in a pottery, but rarely find one that has the comfortable handle and right balance for my taste,

    Love to you,
