These are nice forms, and I like that they are hand built shapes with more flare than simply thrown round, which gets boring. But the photos don't have enough contrast to do them justice!
Hi Barbara, thanks, I tried manipulating the contrast but once they are fired they'll have a glaze and show more contrast.
It could be a junk cup, too. The miscellaneous cups my grandchildren have bought for me are on my desk, holding clutter that I really should pitch.
Hi Joanne, thanks, I have way too many junk pieces in my collection, lol.
These look like they will be a lot of fun when they are glazed.
Hi Lori, thanks, I hope they end up being fun for sure.
Love them. And my mugs are big. Which saves me getting up to get another cup of tea.
Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, well they should shrink after firing we shall see.
Love seeing you making ribbon mugs and cups! How big is too big? My early morning 'teacup' holds 16 oz.!
Hi Suzi, thanks, we shall see; I will have to measure the liquid measure after firing to see. they just seemed large but it is so hard to estimate the size in greenware for me.
I like the first one in particular. :)
Hi Lee, thanks, that was the last one I made, practice makes it better. lol
I don't think they're too large, Linda. For one, some people really like their cups large (supersized), and some restaurants even serve them this way. (Personally I like a small cup for coffee or tea, but do use large ones for soup or desserts). And you are right, they will shrink some in firing...
There is a size for everyone when it comes to mugs. I am sure they will fly off the shelves no matter how big!
I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
