I made Purple Sunset Barrel Mug on the potter’s wheel and pulled the handle directly from the body of the pot. I give the handle a little bead of clay for the thumb to rest or push and ponder. People seem to like that. The bottom is flat. The rim is beaded so it’s comfortable on the lip and won’t chip easily.
Are you pining for the sunsets of the southwest? Feast your eyes on the matte purple layer with gold and green reminiscent of the sunsets of the Southwest. Overlapping glazes: matte purple (big sky), gold (the mellowing sun), and green (the green flash!).
Purple Sunset Barrel Mug stands about 5″ high. It is dishwasher and microwave safe.
