I made Wood Fired Mug on the potter’s wheel and pulled the handle directly from the pot and gave it a thumb stop for comfort. The tapered bottom is flat and stable. The bottom portion of the exterior is naked, with a red brown surface. The upper portion and interior are glazed with a red shino glaze. Natural ash glaze and salt glaze. I dip a deer-tail brush that I made into a black slip and create an abstract, spontaneous line to accent the mug. People often ask me if the brushwork is symbolic. My brushwork represents a moment of energy that does not, if I am successful, come from thought but rather action.
