Tennis Net Mugs
© Copyright 2017 - Paul M. Chenoweth, Nashville, TN USA - All rights reserved.


These two mugs are a hybrid combination of hand-built and wheel-thrown construction. The rim is the only wheel-thrown piece and is included only because I have never been quite satisfied with my efforts to hand-build rims on mugs. Unique to the stamped-on, tennis net theme are the athletic shoe & tennis ball finials to the pulled handle. The mugs are 14oz-16-oz capacity stoneware, fired Cone 10 reduction. Interior glaze is Woo's Blue. Exterior is clear, sprayed on in two light coats.

love them!  what a great idea turned into reality.  one question, having bought a mug with a narrow mouth, i found i could not use it because the top hit my nose before i could drink from the other side, have you tried this size?

oldlady, Thanks! These were inspired by old friends who used to coach tennis.


Your point about narrow-mouthed is well taken.  Generally, I set the minimum width at 3"...anything less makes it harder to clean the inside and (as you point out) more difficult to use.  The rims on these are just about 3.25" wide and seem to work OK.  Moving forward, I suspect I'll stretch that to 3.5".
