my mugshot Monday... new favorites!

(new pottery by Gary Rith)
I did fire the kiln Sunday, but the wife has been out of town and other than various PARTIES, as you know, I have been cleaning not working.... I know, I need to make so many pots, and I cleaned?  Sure.... the accumulated clutter needs a good spring cleaning to help clear the creative brain.... today?  STILL no work early as I tote a CARLOAD of recyclable crap to the dump.  When I say carload, I mean all seats but the drivers, and I can barely see out the back or passenger windows.... GOOD BOY, right?

OK, but what came out of the kiln a couple days ago?  A lot of mugs.  I keep talking about what makes a favorite mug for me, a lifelong quest, and this is a sampling of what is on my mind lately.  One thing on my mind this week is INK BLOT!

Those brown ones look like an upside down skep!

I like your post title--"Mugshot Mondays."
Nothing feels quite as cleansing as a good purge. I need to do that around here!

Love the red spotted mugs! Such a great color and shape. Happy Spring Cleaning. Let me know if you'd like to come south and clean out a few closets for me. :)

It's so freeing to know that someone else is not just having fun in the studio but doing stuff that needs to be done around the house. I hope we both get back to clay very, very soon (this afternoon even).

You just reminded me I need to gather up the recycling for the pickup tomorrow! Thanks, Gary!
