Mug Perfection

Winter pots 2015 223

 

Perfect is a loaded word, for sure. But I am seriously so happy with how these mugs have been coming out of the kiln. They are exactly how I envisioned them when I came up with the design. Sure, they might not be perfect, but I am happy with them. The glaze turned out perfectly satiny and just hazy enough to make the separation between glaze and under glaze noticeable (aside from the obvious texture difference). The under glaze was easy to sand smooth. I am making these mugs in all sorts of color variations, fading from dark to light colors and the other way around. Sometimes I just put a solid color on the whole thing and let the glaze do the rest of the work.

This mug fades from dark bluish green to black on the bottom.

And finally, my first ever PINK pot. A while ago, my little sister asked if I could make her something pink, but I wasn’t sure of the best way to do it. The underglaze I actually used for this is labeled violet and maroon, but it appears to be pretty pink after the firing.

All three of these awesome mugs are available for sale in my Etsy shop, and all are just $26 each plus shipping! Here’s the link to my shop:
