shooting for perfection...or at least a favorite!



I ask the wife a question that seems obvious, but has not been asked before:
"what is a favorite mug shape?" and she wanders into the studio and points at these here (click!).
I am like "AH HA! Really?!".  Good choice.
So I make it for her in green with green....
I tell her: "I like those to be tall and narrow and curved just so.  I should make you a small one too....."
I have not worked in that style in a bit but this week I am....

I like all the shapes...and my beagle mug is the 'go-to' when I'm wanting a special cup of coffee. Finding a shape to make IS tricky, though!
