Barb's birds and bees Part Three

There were some bee mugs in the last glaze kiln.  I think I like them a lot. Nobody else in the studio said they did.  But they feel just right for me.

They are simple squared off cylinders.  And inside is satin white, with some of the stoneware showing through.  The exterior glaze is matte black, then dipped into the same white over the black on the rim, which gives the dripped down effect.  It also makes a really smooth rim for one's lips to drink from.



I seldom make 6 of anything, usually it's 5 because one just doesn't make it.  So this is rare for me!
And I'm thinking of keeping 2 for myself.  I already christened one with my morning coffee!

    1. Thanks, the more I look at the bee with the foggy white glaze over its head, the more I know how bees are flying in spite of all they are up against! Go Bees!

  7. They are wonderful! Agree, that if you like them that much you should keep at LEAST one for yourself.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
