Eek!!!! So flipping excited to have just taken delivery of these enamel mugs printed for us by @awesomemerch
Designs available are our Lion and Giraffe 👍🏻 For photography purposes we had to have a delicious treat as a prop - thanks @band_of_bakers for sorting us out with that!
A simple mug, body thrown to a thin straight cylinder, trimmed sides and bottom and handle attached. This piece is particularly speckled with iron flecks from the reduction firing—I wish more came out of the firings like this but it’s always how it is, some are nicer than others and it’s a good thing really as it means occasionally some real beauties emerge and sometimes they can take you completely by surprise.
I’ve always liked hand pulled handles from the mug like this, perhaps they have very traditional connotations that aren’t always very modern but I’ve always liked how natural they feel, they seamlessly flow from the mug, springing from the top and attaching near the base. I’ve tried to push them thiner and finer and want to continue to do so in the future, it becomes a very delicate process of applying enough pressure to thin them out without pulling them too much and weakening the top join or simply ripping them off the vessel themselves. It’s certainly a test of ones skill and it always takes a few before I get back into the rhythm of pulling them again.

So today, in addition to making cups for NCECA, I got to teach Ocean how to subtract fractions with whole numbers. Does anyone else sometimes feel like helping kids with math that you learned in 4th grade is basically like trying to teach them a completely different language?! So I’m hysterically laughing mid way through explaining how regrouping the whole number part works and Ocean’s like, “Maybe I should just wait for my teacher to explain it”😂😂 And obvi I’m like “Oh yeah well does your teacher know how to make a mug like this?!”😂 And Ocean’s like 🙄🙄🙄... 😂🙌 #heretohelp#imajoredinart#areyousmarterthana5thgrader
