Wheel thrown and pulled handles...how "old school" can you get. The glaze took nearly a year to get to a place where it looks great and feels even better. When I set out to make mugs (again) I really wanted the mug to feel good in the hand. This series of glazes met my goal.
Of course a mug could look good, feel good and not be functional. This is a nice compact size (a pod fills it just right)...the mug goes into the dishwasher and microwave. The handle is large enough to slip a couple of fingers into as you wrap your hand around the mug...but not so large to cause the mug to be heavy on the fingers...and because the handle is a hand-pulled strap rather than a round profile...it doesn't twist and turn in you hand.
Orange? Who does an orange glaze...I surprised myself and liked it. It took a bit of tweaking to get the orange to be right, but now I'm digging it.
PURPLE! It's the most asked for color and this shade of purple is really a marriage between violet and purple. Just a happy color.
Of course because these are handmade, you need to consider that there will be some variation in the pieces. It's just the nature of the process.
