last of the mug club mugs

March 2012

Finally finished the mugs for Cooper’s restaurant mug club.   They now have them hanging up over the bar.

I made quite a few face mugs because it was fun playing around with expressions, although, several ended up looking mad.

I also enjoyed trying out different textures on the mugs.  Especially on the face mugs.  A rough face with lots of character seemed to be more interesting than a smooth face.

more mugs

Cooper’s Restaurant wants 50 more mugs for their mug club.  That will be 100 total.  It’s been a challenge because they want them all unique…very unique.  So I’ve been playing around with designs, textures and glazes.  I’ve even embedded small stones and copper wire in some.  They are all numbered on the bottom.  Here’s a few waiting to be fired.

 

 

 

 

 

Cooper’s mug club

Oct, 2011

Cooper’s restaurant here in Salisbury recently asked me to make 50 different mugs for their mug club.

I made a few face mugs, flower mugs, textured mugs, bumpy mugs, striped mugs, glazed mugs and a fish mug and an egret mug.
