pretty (?) mugs all in a row

as promised, i've been making mugs to go with the new teapots.
there's just something satisfying seeing so many identical items lined up in rows!

another serving of tea

here are three of the new teapots, glaze-fired and spruced-up with decals.
the flower decals are commercially available products.
the fishing lure decals were made by me.
i'm using a print gocco to make the decals.
it's so much quicker and easier than decals i've made previously with
conventional silkscreen techniques! i'm looking forward to doing more!
the teapots are for sale at my etsy shop.

to a tea

lately, my work has been taking lots of diferent directions:
scrafitto, colored clay, applied texture and more recently overglaze
decals and a return to sculptural forms. not sure where i'll end up.
but, one thing remains constant. my love of making teapots.
here's a batch ready for bisque firing.
