Title: Mugs, Ceramics

My mugs took about three weeks to complete. Looking back in my pottery journal, I can see how frustrated I was at first but then so satisfied when I finally completed my set. Handles were grueling, all I wanted to do was feel the clay running through my fingers on the wheel....not hand build. I tried pulling handles but with a deadline fast approaching, decided to go the hand built route. At first, there were supposed to be four colors on my mugs, not three. One layer melted off in the glaze firing and though not intentional, I'm happy it did because I love how simple they look and the contrasting lines the glazes have created.

Award: Excellent
