I made Taos Pouch Mug on the potter’s wheel from an iron-bearing stoneware clay. The clay is a toasty tan color when fired to its maturity. I pulled the handle directly from the body of the mug and added a thumb rest for extra comfort. The handle is comfortable – not too thin not too thick. The bottom is flat.
Taos Pouch Mug helps keeps your favorite beverage hot or cold. Liquid flows smoothly from the inside curve to your mouth. The shape is pleasing to the eye and comfortably balanced in the hand.
I altered my “Taos” glaze combination of blue, green, cream, and gold slightly, daubing blooms of gold over the blue instead of allowing it to run. It reminds me of landscape seen from the open road. The floating blue background fires to a navy blue when applied in a single layer. The golden daubs create bright “blooms” when they interact with the blue during the firing cycle.
All of my mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
Makes a great gift for any occasion: Housewarming, birthday, holiday, “thank you”.
