The one on the right for me. The glazed surface seems to work better with the grooves and gives it a slimy appearance.

Both are cool.

I thought Canadians would be more polite than that. The responses to that situation that went through my head were not kind or good for business kind of responses.  It would be interesting to follow such people back to their place of employment and do the same thing to them. 


PS..I love a big mug. It reminds you of Sunday, siting in a comfy chair in your PJs with no set schedule.  

Good luck.


In Topic: What Clay Are You Using,and Could You Quick Review Them Please

I won't be very helpful as I use "Venus White" from my local supplier. It's their white stoneware blend. I like the smoothness and body. So unless you want to come to California (bring water with you) this will not be helpful.

In Topic: When Do You Keep Your Own Stuff?

I keep every piece until someone buys it. They tend to rotate in the house until we get a new one to replace it and then they get boxed up and ready to ship. :)

I've sometimes been a little sad when a piece got sold, but I figured it was going to brighten up somones home and that makes it worthwhile.

If doing saggar might I recommend one that can be positioned so you can see the readout from a distance. If you can, you want to stay away from the gasses of Ferric chloride etc.  I always wear a respirator, but staying a distance away and monitoring the progress is easier to enjoy a frosty beverage.
