Trying to Decide

I'm trying to decide if I'm going to sell this one, keep this one, or use it for the Etsy Mud Team Mug Swap. It's such a hard decision!

I threw this on the wheel, it's Dave's Porcelain Laguna clay, and added a handpulled handle. I added the handle a bit too soon though and from the top view, it is not exactly round. Then I glazed black iron oxide dots on the outside and the inside and dipped in Malcom's Shino. It was reduction fired in a gas kiln to cone 10. Last I applied some of my hand drawn iron oxide laser decals and refired to cone 04 in my electric kiln.

It's a hard decision.


  1. Natalie, that is one fabulous mug. I love how the decals came out. Beautiful piece.

  2. Thank you so much, Mary, for your sweet comment. I am loving loving loving these decals now that I have finally figured out how to fire them properly!

  3. Wow nice stuff. Will definitely give this a try myself. Will most probably not be as good as yours though
