I saved the best for last! In this last firing I had some mugs that just sang to me. They won't sing to everyone and that's just fine. That is one of the great things about pottery and life in general I guess. We all have different likes and dislikes. These mugs are one of my new favorite things. Let me list some of the things I like about them: the glaze - such a great variation of colors from top to bottom, the stamps along the bottom edge and on the handles, the weight of the mugs in my hand and especially how they feel. I think I'll just go hold them again.
