I had fun with this one. I was in a really good mood while throwing it, then I added some stripes in the slip on the surface. When I was done with that I stroked my finger up from the bottom several times in different places to create a dented diagonal stripe in the piece, then turned the wheel back on to straighten out the rim. Something this fun needed a really elaborate handle, so I hand formed a deep curvy handle that turns into a little extra foot on the bottom of the mug.
