Mugshot Monday

Here's another very simple but pretty mug. I posted a similar one a few weeks ago, this is just a different shape. It's still Standards Brown Speck clay and Stan's White glaze fired to cone 6 in oxidation.

To me, it is just simplicity. I could hold this mug and enjoy a nice, warm cup of coffee while relaxing in the morning. Years ago I used to read a newspaper while having my morning coffee. Now I'm a little more tree friendly so I get my news from NPR and on-line but this cup brings me back to Sunday mornings with the New York Times.

Where can you find some simplicity in your life?

This little gem came out of the last firing of the reduction kiln. The glaze is Reitz Green which is one of my favorites. I think Don Reitz developed the glaze. It's a satin matt glaze that goes from blue to green to black in color depending on various factors in the kiln. It also plays well with other glazes. I used it on some elephant mugs I made recently and they all sold plus I have orders for more.

 It's a treat to work with a glaze that works so well with the pots.
