I've spent this last year messing around with Cone 10, Earthenware, and Raku. I've tried a variety of bowl and mug shapes and sizes, most are in the Chatham County landfill now. I keep coming back to this mug shape, simple, straight forward. The inspiration for this shape came from Brandon Phillips. Brandon's pieces are also simple, straight forward and very comforting to me. I like Brandon's work and the mug above is inspired by ones like below from his latest firing. His handles are of course way better and there is a movement to his work I haven't quite got yet. Trying for that treadle look on a slow electric wheel. Guess I owe you a $1.50 Brandon! The glaze on my mug is Malcolm's Shino with a Chun liner. This is the one Shino I keep coming back to.
