First batch of mugs for 2012


Today I focused on throwing mugs.  I got a late start because I met up with a friend of mine Jeremy.  After hearing some very valuable life lessons, I decided to take a different approach mentally to throwing each pot.  I slowed down my pace and found better rhythm within each piece.  I ended up making 14 cups.  Tomorrow I will wipe the bottoms and attach handles to them.  I pulled one handle today off of the piece and emphasized the attachment to the bottom by adding an additional coil to help for presentation as well.  Above and below are pictures of the mugs I threw today and an example of the type of handle I will be using tomorrow.
