I am going to be throwing bowls this week but by the weekend I hope to have mixed up enough of my new glaze samples so that I can glaze these first mugs that came out of the biscuit firing yesterday. That will allow me to kill two birds with one stone: learn about how these mugs function and whether the glaze colours fulfil the promise they held on the test tile on an actual object. I am pleased with the shape of the mugs, though have some initial concerns, such as they might be too small and the handle might not be substantial enough, too narrow, as some of them feel slightly unbalanced. But the test will come on Sunday as I lift one to my lips and sup a hot, milky cup of tea.
