happy new years!



I started off the new year by spending a few hours at the studio. It was really nice. I made some mugs that spread the love.

The 1-100 challenge continues. The love mugs are #51-59.
The handbuilt mugs below are #36-50.

Much love for your mugs. I'm loving the bowl shaped ones.

I love the I love you mug! Too cute!

And I never said thanks for the other plates (cuz I'm a loser). And I love the little bunny thing. It's perfect for my ring while I print so I don't loose it. Thank you!

Such cute mugs! I can't get enough of them! Happy New Year to you! Go Vegans!

Love the love mug and the impressed design mugs. May I ask what is the orange on the handles of the vegan mugs?

WOW! These look great! I still haven't figured out the best way to handbuild a mug...they always look like beggining ceramics! Yours are beautiful, so neat and clean! Love the textures too...

WildMagnolia-Thank you! I'm loving the bowl-shaped ones, too. Think I will make a few more today.

Caitlin-Yay! Glad you got them safely!

Hey Roni! Hope you are well!

Linda-Hi and thank you! The orange is wax resist, which helps to reduce cracking at the handle/cup joint. Allows me to dry them quicker and not keep under plastic for so long. I love my wax resist!

Pinkkiss-Thanks! Huge fan of your work. Now that I've started handbuilding, I want to do it all the time!

Hi Jeanette . . .I have been lurking on your blog for a while . . . your work is beautiful. I am working to find more of my own voice and I love your idea for 100 mugs. Maybe it will help me not "over think" each piece . . instead of just flowing . . . thank you for the inspiration (and the great blog)

Hi Nona!
Thanks for commenting. The 1-100 series has been fun. It has improved my production skills and given me a chance to make some mug styles that I hadn't had the chance to make yet. Plus, build up my post-holiday inventory. All in all, its been a positive experience!
