messing around with mugs, day one...

Oh I know, I am restless, have a poor attention span and today should be teapot Tuesday, but that is not what is on my mind.  Actually, as I sit here, MORE mugs are on my mind...but here are some favorite shapes freshly out of the kiln... I like these 4 colors together, and I like making a spiral swirly pattern on mugs.  You like to make a fun decoration, like spirals, but not mess up the USEFULNESS of the item or ruin its function, right? I am not sure what I like most.  I am exploring that this week....
have a great Tuesday!

What a dilemma!, choosing between lots of spirals or just a few! Well done!

Nothing goes better with a teapot than a mug.

Beautiful pastels and swirls...and yet just right for a strong beverage!

I love these. The shapes and the colors are so springy and fresh. I like the different colors too rather than all one matching set. Nicely done, as always.
