Mugshot Monday again

One side takes you to nature...
But the other side takes you to a goddess figure


Remembering the tiny carving of Venus of Willendorf, a goddess from before Venus was even conceived...basically a fertility mother.

These new mugs have a different glazing technique, using black Stroke & Coat by Mayco as a watercolor basically.  Then the application of their matt clear glaze over everything, which gives a lovely sepia quality to the thin black glaze.  A few lines with Designer Liner and the actual black is our studio black glaze.

Holding that matt clear glaze is part of the sensual experience of these mugs...it's silky.

A bee was busy with blossoms at the lake last week!

My nature walk photo for today:
Purple triliums about to open.

Today's quote:

Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.
Maya Angelou
