In Topic: How Much Are You Willing To Pay For A Mug?

17 February 2017 - 11:06 AM

I spend around 30.00. A mug for me is totally about function and feel and so I would never buy online. Tend to buy at conferences and shows where I have met or know the maker. I won't say I would never spend more than 30.00, but the more expensive mugs are often the ones with carving, fancy handles, etc. and I find the "fancy" mugs often sacrifice function or feel so I don't buy them.

See if you can find Pete Pinnel's essay on flocculation vs deflocculation. That was what finally made things click for me. If you think of it in terms of thick vs thin you will eventually become confused because that is not what it going on.

My advice is to be cautious when adding the epsom salt solution...it's easy to over flocculate which is then another problem to fix.

In Topic: Qotw: What Inspires You In Your Work, And How Do You Incorporate It?

One of the things that inspires me is to try and NOT do what the folks around me are doing.  As an example, I live in an area with lots of water...so I will NOT incorporate crabs, fish, herons, etc. because it is such a common motif.
