new tea bowl/mug design

I am working on a new design for a cup that is a combination of a tea bowl, bowl, and mug. It starts off being thrown on the wheel as a traditional tea bowl style, and is hand altered afterword, with comfortable areas for sipping and indentations as well as a nicely trimmed and notched foot ring to make this really nice to hold and sip from. The addition of a handle with plenty of knuckle room so it can be held other ways as well as a complimenting saucer complete the piece...look for these soon in the online shop....

Day Lily Afternoon

The beautiful orange day lilies are in full bloom in the wetlands right now...Here are some pics of Day Lilies (Hemerocallis fulva)  that I collected and sauteed So beautiful and tasty too!  They taste great raw too, but these were delicious sauteed in a little olive oil with garlic and fresh herbs. Click here for more info on harvesting and cooking Day Lilies.
