These are the mugs from the post I did earlier if ya'll remember that. I thought they came out pretty good. I have been experimenting with a couple of blue glazes and I think I found one that might be alright. Blue glazes are a touchy subject to alot of potters. It's kinda hard to explain but alot of potters (including myself) don't realy like to use blue. I guess it's sort of like a cliche and alot of potters joke that you could sell dog poo if you put some blue glaze on it. Of course, there is alot of snobbery and elitism in ceramics and many potters also look down on mid-range stoneware too. Which is what I do. You have to use glazes that sell, of course, but you also need to use glazes that have some challenge to them and I guess that's the trouble some people have with blue. It's just blue; every time; over and over. Anyway, I am probably babbling a little because I'm really, really tired but I wanted to post something. We should have some more about the house soon.
Edit: Some smarty pants architect told me that these mugs are not blue at all but teal or aquamarine and that a real primary blue would look better because these are "ordinary". While I agree that they probably are more of a teal color, I still like them. So there!
