tall and thin or chubby and short

I was cropping this photo and realized "I used the same amount of clay to start each of these cup/mugs, funny, they are so similar but so different! Like the tall thin brother and short chubby brother".
I love wide, round cups and saucers so much, my favorite pottery coffee or tea sipping shape, like this blue cup here.  You see it and want to lay some cappucino in there and draw a smily face, right?  Then dunk a cookie in there and swoon! It is also good for your cuppa soup or yogurt...

The wife tells me the other day she really likes the shape of the green mug here.  It is really simple but easy to wrap your hand around and will also resist slopping out when you carry it plus is slightly better at retaining heat (being closed in at the top).  Both cups are really practical and simple, friendly rounded shapes, and then there is the pig! Have a great Saturday!

I'm a tall mug lover, cause I never finish the drink till it's almost cold.

It's tough to decide which one to drink from and difficult to decide which design to make. I like them all.

I think I'm a tall and thin type.....although in summer. I guess I just love 'em all....pigs in heaven!
