Stripes and Curves

This mug might suggest a somewhat feminine shape. I don't know. It is stripes, and it's curves, and it's round, and it's VERY nice to hold.

I threw this large, 16 ounce mug from fine English China. The next day I sent stripes of liquid slip cascading down the side in regular intervals. The slip followed and accentuated the graceful curves of the mug's profile.

That texture left a PERFECT surface upon which to show off a celadon glaze that breaks up and pools over the slightest texture. It looks alive. It's mostly green with just the hint of blue highlighting the rim and the spiral cut beneath it.
