I've mostly been working on some customer requests lately. Sometimes commissions are a good thing when they involves problem solving. The time factor can be frustrating, but the learning experience is good.
One request was for a 20 oz mug. My usual mugs are 11-12 oz. I have one bisqued mug hanging around that I don't care for but use to practice brushing oxide designs. It is 18 oz so that gave me some idea of what to shoot for. These are my first attempts. The ones with the rib swipes have yet to be trimmed and get handles. I think they're the ones I'll go with. The larger expanse of surface on these mugs seemed to call for something, and after some pondering I decided to try the diagonal swipes.
No new shapes here, just some glaze and slip decoration ideas evolving for these. A couple of customer requests led me there, though. Just a little more experimenting in store for me.
