How I spent my Victoria Day Long Weekend...

For most people, the first long weekend of the summer (In Canada, it is the Victoria Day Long Weekend) means packing up a tent, or trailer, and heading to the mountains, or lake, or cabin etc. I am the exception to that rule. I spent my entire holiday at the studio, where I found my inner mug. I normally hate throwing mugs, but every once in a while, I take it on as a challenge to find "that perfect mug". I think I found that mug. The one that I can throw with ease repeatedly, has an interresting shape, allows for a comfortable handle, and allows for surface decoration and interresting glaze applications. I will need to see how they turn out with various glazes, but so far so good.
