  2. From the album: Favorites

    This one is fresh from my latest firing. I'm in love with this one. It's wheel thrown with a pulled handle, underglaze decoration, and hand carved texture. It's glazed in 3 different commercial glazes and fired in my electric kiln.

    Coffee mug

    From the album: SPIRAL CERAMIC MOLDS

    This mug, coffee cup, was made from a lower portion of one of my ceramic lamps. I only made one. Dan
  4. From the album: Wheel Thrown Work, 2015

    Again, one of my first wheel-thrown pieces. Made with Speckled Buff, I painted white slip into the inside of the bowl so the color would show true, then slip trailed a design on the outside in white slip. I was not prepared for the shrinkage! It still throws me off. But this would be a charming hot chocolate cup or great for dessert or ice cream.

  5. From the album: newer work

    These have no actual granite in them, but the glaze has a granite-like quality, with green specks on a blue background, a smooth matte surface, and a micaceous sparkle in the sun.
  6. From the album: Favorites

    I do a lot of this nautical wave pattern on my pieces. this was the first cup I stacked 2 of the patterns on top of each other. I actually meant to glaze the interior with a different liner but I really liked the combination anyway after it was fired. applied engobe, with sgraffito, commercial glazes. Fired ^6 electric.

  7. Looking through the gallery today I noticed a lot of mugs that had great potential, but such unpracticed and awful handles that the mug became rubbish. Why spend your time making a great form only to put a sloppy handle on it? Practice handles. They will set you apart. Just glance through etsy and see what I mean. If you have a great pot, but a shoddy handle, it is rubbish. However, if you have a weaker pot, but a fantastic handle, sometimes it can really work. Handles are powerful to the form of a mug and will blast you through to another level of potter. Need some help? Here are some ideas: Practice on finished cups or even smaller plastic buckets. You can pull multiple handles on a practice cup and spin it to compare the differences. Try different styles and don't become blocked or stuck in a certain way, regardless of your reason. Search Youtube for some great videos on how to make handles and get great ideas Look at online galleries to see what well-known potters do. I personally like http://www.schallergallery.com as their photos and setup are great for visual learning.
  8. I love making Yunomi's. I don't call them that, I call them cups. But the shape is the same idea, a tallish cup form with a trimmed foot. Anyway, I love sitting down and throwing tons of them off the hump. I also love trimming them. There seems to be something pure about this particular shape and I enjoy it immensely. My problem is this: people in Minnesota don't know what to do with it. They know what a mug is and will buy one blind. But it's like having to pull teeth to get people interested in cups. I use a cup WAY more than a mug. Yet I find that most people enjoy their glassware and don't intend to include any ceramics with their cold drink lineup. It seems like only coffee, tea, and hot cocoa can be drunk from a ceramic vessel. Anything cold like soda, milk, juice, or water, ceramic cups tend to fall by the wayside to glass. I have thought awhile on this and believe it may have something to do with people wanting very SPECIFIC uses for things--too general and people don't really want it. Think about all the one hit wonders like French butter dishes, apple bakers, ring keepers, etc. The general public seems to adore these things. But you show them a cup and they are like, what the *ell do I use this for? Perhaps the ingenuity of potters is biting me in the butt? Does anyone else experience this? I am an educator at heart so I am always trying to teach people pottery things but no one seems to like ceramic yunomis/cups. It is always disheartening how many cups I have leftover from a sale. All my mugs go really fast, but I'm lucky to sell a few cups. PS - this does not include the cup form that is similar to glassware, like something that I might call a "dinner cup." I am specifically talking about the traditional yunomi form. I will post a picture too so there is no confusion
