Mugs are quite the challenging form. Never before this year have I cared to make a short mug and at last I have resolved the form. But oh the deco!? I have had three critiques with three separate ceramic specialists this week and of course they all think differently when it comes to surface on my mugs. One says keep it loose and brandish the paintbrush with no inhibitions for it will be seen in line. One says nay to block coloring as the least interesting or sophisticated surface. And on says perhaps another implement for mark making be employed. With thirty undecorated mugs I had at it last night and got to complicating surface as I so love to complicate form. It is getting complicated folks and at the same time much simpler!
