The pieces of pottery which I come to love making the most are small cups. They’re immediately useful on the tea table, are surprisingly easy for me to craft, and have been fun fodder for experimenting with pattern and color. During my last session, I really got into one particular matte green glaze and ran with it on a number of pieces. The four cups below are now some of my favorites. Unfortunately, my absolute favorite, the large thin straight-walled piece with heavier glaze, suffered a fall and is now significantly chipped and broken. A good reminder of impermanance. I always neglect to provide a size comparison in my photos, something I need to remember to do in the future. The small cups hold about an ounce and the large ones four ounces.
