This week I am featuring a set of mugs. I have 4 in the set, three are pictured here. These mugs are glazed with a soft white shino glaze on the inside and a 1/2 dip in celedon on the outside over flashing slip. The glazes mix creates subtle color variations which are further enhanced by fly ash from the firing. These make great "everyday" mugs (this is the style I use most in my own home). Like all of my wood-fired pots, they are microwave and dishwasher safe.
This cup, and a few others, are now available in my online store. This week's cup is a lovely little Yunomi (small, everyday tea cup). This is a new form for me, and I am sure to enjoy exploring it for many years to come. This one has pretty much everything I am looking for in pot: a slight wobble in the form, comfortable in the hand, and a beautiful surface with lots of subtle color variations and textures. In the store you can mouse over the image to get better details- check it out!
Cup of the Day: Blue Yunomi
I've got so many new cups to show, I thought I'd just feature one a day (or so) for a while.
Yunomi with Blue Glaze
More drinking vessels: Yunomi
A yunomi is a common, everyday cup for tea. Here's a few new yunomi I made from the latest wood firing.
Just got back from a great trip to fire the wood kiln at Honeyrock. Here's a first look at some of the new pots.
New Sweep Project Prints
Fresh cyanotype prints of UGRR "stops" in Will County. I'm really happy how these turned out- I wish the photos did them justice. These should be available in the store soon.
New Piece. A Little Help on The Title?
Just finished this piece (I think). But having trouble coming up with an appropriate title. Suggestions welcome!

A place for me to ramble on when I need to take a break.
