Even though I've said I don't make mugs, I made this stemmed mug today. I had a good time pinching the form, so I'm making more. The handle fits my hand well and there's a little indentation at the top for the thumb to rest.
Here's one more I just made. Both are a generous cafe au lait size with a stem. This one's a little taller in the stem, but smaller in the cup. Oh well, no two alike here. I like the first one better than the second one. I might take measurements of the first one. Funny how small changes can make a big difference in the look of a piece.
I'm thinking of making a few tea bowls and soup bowls with handles. Must be the cold weather which prods me to make mugs and bowls. I can almost feel the warmth coming from a mug or bowl as I make it. Can't wait to fire these.
