Now she passes it back to me to have a handle put on and foot colour applied.
I’ve been trying out a new idea on an espresso mug. The lower half is an unglazed black slip and the upper half a slightly overlapping clear glaze. I like it’s bold simplicity and interesting tactile quality.
Tilla isn’t convinced though. Her verdict: crude. I bow to her opinions on these things but will have to see if I can continue the research and come up with something that will win her over!

Espressos used to be the only mug shape we didn’t decorate – we assumed they were too small. But recently my decoration has become more graphic and minimal which seems to suit a small scale. The four we’ve made are shown on the cups and mugs page, but this is my favourite one. I’m sure we’ll be making more.
