HOLY SH!T pottery!
This is not one of those posts, it is, as usual, ME ME ME! Such as, you want to make pots sometimes where people go "holy sh!t lookit that!". I was thinking the other day, as I reluctantly let a robot sugar bowl go to a new home (sometimes I make something and it does not go for sale for awhile...it sits there and I think about it....) and I was like "put that guy on the side of a mug!" and the first 2 were tres exciting, but then I was thinking, like the middle one here, that he needed to be a little flatter against the mug...and you end up with a LOT OF HOLY SH!T lookit that pottery. Or at least I think so ;)
(considerations, in practical terms, include making relief sculpture on the side of a mug that does not bump the chin or lips of the drinker, and also does not have little bits that poke you in the eye, etc, therefore the robot on the side opposite the handle....and that way, too, all the lefties who like to complain about righties are silenced!)
(robot mugs by me)
