I toyed with the idea of bright red daisies against a yellow background.
I toyed with the idea of a simple clear glaze over the entire mug.
In the end, this is what I decided.
I always meant to do more of those ...so it's nice that there is a bit of a party going on in the bottom of this mug.
The bottom developed a teeny surface crack in the bottom during the firing. It poses no problems.
When I put this in the microwave on high for two minutes, the handle was cool to the touch (score)!
Near the bottom of the belly is my potter mark, my three initials stamped into the clay.
Had a great time with this custom order. I always say, "I don't do custom orders." But if you want a mug and you trust me with the design and implementation, I'm game if you are.
How much does it hold? It holds 3 cups of liquid comfortably (24 ounces).
