Botanical Mugs


Botanical Mugs

how funny is it that I had to go back, searching though my flickr and iPhoto files to find this picture so I could remember how I make my mugs? I believe it's been a year since I've thrown a mug. But now I've got my botanicals gathered, ready to press them in mugs I can't remember how to make. They're just cylinders, slightly flared lip at the top, but the one I've made doesn't look right. And I don't have any left in my pottery stash.

Bamboo tumbler? sure. Honey pot, ok. Berry bowl? I could make it in my sleep. Mug, um, let me get back to you.

And honestly, this photo doesn't help much since I can't see the bottoms. Forgive me as I wander off laughing like a lunatic. . . .

Have a good weekend, folks.

Haha! Love the botanical mugs. Hope you figure out the details one way or another. Enjoy your weekend. (Sorry about the Tigers, but as a Louisville fan, I'm not *that* sorry!)

Melissa,
Do you want me to take a picture of mine when I get home from work? I could e-mail it to you. We love ours, and use them every morning for coffee! So glad you are making more.

Have a wonderful weekend!

just so everyone here knows- my husband is a university of memphis alumn, so we cheer for the tigers. Last night's defeat was crushing. But this basketball fan is a tarheel. We'll see how Roy and his boys do tonight! Go heels!

We could take a pic of the mug we have here if you need!
