Beyond Mugs!

Beyond Mugs!

I started throwing this week and found myself making mugs!  Gee whiz! Can’t I get past that?  I keep trying to push myself and find myself falling back into the COMFORTABLE ZONE!

So I took those mugs and altered them!  Finished product is a sugar and creamer set with a tray and spoons!

I also made a sake set!  My first and it definitely needs work.  Next time!

Ronnie covered another table for me beside the slab roller-you can NEVER have enough work surfaces.

Hope this finds me moving forward!

Reach for the stars – or at least the top of your brain!

    Love your top tray.. what clay are you using? Looks like a terracotta?
    That is a great table with the new canvas cover, I’m envious of that…

      The clay is Keane 9- it stays a warm brown when glazed. I like it better than a white foot beneath a rich, dark glaze. And YES, the table is divine! It even has a drawere

    I too am a little envious of that new canvas covered table. A free horizontal surface just waiting to be worked on. Lucky duck!
