I received an order for 18 mugs. Geez! Shouldn’t be a hard ask! But I NEVER make anything the same twice! I used to…so they want more…damn!
Anyway, after taking Malcolm Greenwood’s class, I now know how to get mugs consistently the same size with little pain! Firstly, you need to use the same amount of clay – Check out the previous post on how to determine how much clay you need for various pots – Click Here!
Then you need a measurement device. The Tombo, originally created and used in Japan, is the niftiest tool ever! And I made my own, thanks to Malcolm’s class! All you need is a little bamboo, a drill and a wooden skewer- all set!
Easy Peasy! Mine wasn’t as pretty as his, but worked well all the same! Give it a go!
