This is the next attempt at developing a half-glazed/half unglazed design of mug. It follows on from the espresso mug I did a post about on Dec. 4th of last year. When we talk about the design between ourselves we refer to this sort of mug as being “donkeyfied” as in a “donkey jacket”. It is an idea I borrowed from a range of bags that Ally Capellino produces (I gave one to Tilla as a tenth wedding anniversary present).
What’s different this time? It is dipped in a paler, lower contrast slip; dipped less deep; black foot.
Tilla still isn’t convinced by this mug. I quite like it. Not enough though – something else needs to happen.
