FARMER'S WIFE AND her eggcellent order


(mug by Gary Rith)
My pal Farmer's Wife in south Texas asked for, nonconformist that she is, a mug of a cow jumping over the SUN not the moon. Well heck that's a nifty idea. She wanted it in YELLOW, but I think it needed sky blue behind the sun, and the rest of the mug in yellow. Just came out of the kiln, piping hot.
It is, of course, HUGE. (Texas STYLE!) Without exaggerating? 3 cups PLUS.

I think I just got an idea that I'd like a photography-themed mug. A big one. Can you make a mug with a camera on it or some such thing? If it's possible, name yer price and I'll buy one. :o)

Oh, and happy new blog.

Michelle said...

A big mug but maybe not 3 cups worth. 2 would be just fine. Or even 1.5.
