I made Taos U 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, sturdy, and roomy.  The mug has a trimmed foot that is sits flat and is stable.

To create the “Taos” surface, I start by dipping the cup in a floating blue glaze that I make.  Then I dip the bottom portion in a copper green that I make.  Next I trail cream glaze across the intersection of blue and green.  Lastly, I dip the rim in a red gold which will sheet somewhat when it melds.  All the elements of the Northern New Mexico colors come into play here, giving the surface the feeling of a landscape.

Taos U Mug helps keeps your favorite beverage hot or cold.  Liquid flows smoothly from the inside curve to your mouth.  Durable, smooth to touch.

Makes a great gift for all occasions:  Housewarming, birthday, holiday, “thank you”.

All of my mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.
