I made Taos Short Barrel 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 mug has a flat bottom.
Taos Short Barrel Mug helps keeps your favorite beverage hot or cold. Liquid flows smoothly from the inside curve to your mouth.
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.
Makes a great gift for all occasions: Housewarming, birthday, holiday, “thank you”.
All of my mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
