HEY!  How about some pots?!  Been awhile, hmm?

I had a message from a pig lover "we need four piggy mugs NOW!" which is the best sort of order, right?
And I have been messing around with this luscious new spring green celadon the last few weeks, as you know, and trying different things with it--I have always used opaque glazes, but this one has a little bit of transparency, which is a very different behavior, and I am getting used to it.  As in, give it texture! Like wee little flowers…that makes the glaze break into the light color…this mug here?  In my hand with tea….

In other news, the beagle wouldn't admit it in so many words, but on cold days she loves to cuddle with the cat...

The piggy mugs are adorable. We must all have mugs on our mind, I have posted about them too. Then again... don't potters always have mugs on their minds?

Lovely piggy mugs, and the celadon continues to look lovely! Penny sure looks guilty!

Who wouldn't want piggy mugs? Those are great!
