green meanies....

I gave myself a mug this morning...just 20 minutes ago! I was in the studio last week making other things and was like "do a squared off mug with checkerboard, etc....a little like our little plates...".
It came outta the glaze kiln just now and I was like "MINE!".  Spike had his eye on my breakfast...thinking "MINE!"....
He is rather cute and charming....

I have a customer who really likes berry bowls.  I prefer multi-purpose bowls, but certainly understand the ease and appeal of one nice medium-large bowl, dump in the blueberries, rinse thoroughly, then set it on the dish on the table....this is the first I have made like this...with a frog!

i like the little feet on that mug, an excellent choice for a keeper.

Lori Buff said...

My wife was away at a family wedding this week-end in Wisconsin, so it was not PARRRR-TEEE, it was POTTTTTTERRRREEEEE!
Mugs, bowls, firing, pugging! Such glory! (I did miss you, Dear, but I had to make the most of your time away...)

I've never heard of berry bowls, but that makes sense. That's pretty clever! And those are some cute berry bowls.

I have a Gary Berry Bowl and love it! works great for washing and storing veggies in the fridge so I have something healthy to snack on rather than raiding the bag of chocolate chips. :)
