I threw the basic cylinders a bit ago… and finally got around to finishing them. I trimmed and added handles on Saturday, and then did some detailing with colored slips tonight. It has been a fun project… trying out some new shapes for some new mugs. Some of them I’m liking… some loving… and others not so much. I’m always open for opinions, so please add your Comments below. I’m actually thinking I might tackle another batch of new shapes… and force myself to go even further the next time!!!

I absolutely love these mugs. Did you throw the bottom part and then add the top half at a later time? Would love to know the ptocess.

Thanks Cindy… and NOPE. They’re all thrown as one piece. The top part however has a layer of colored slip painted on it. So maybe that’s why they look like they might be thrown separately?
