slip 'em some tongue!



(mugs by Gary Rith)
I posted yesterday, just below, a video of me throwing a mug body. This is what I was making, after the mug was half dry you add can eyes, handle etc. I have made monster mugs before, which have fangs and all, but I was thinking why not just ordinary teeth too? With a tongue at the bottom ;^)

They remind me of mustache cups they used to make. They had a small shelf at the top of the cup to prevent the mustache from getting wet or stained from the drink in the cup.

Those would look really cool with a nice frothy beverage like a Latte. That way they would be foaming at the mouth!

Cute, but a little scary. LOL. That would make a great present and great conversation starter.

I can't imagine drinking out of the cup and then seeing the tonque.

I am going to start my "real" blog in the next week, and I live about 10 minutes from Ron and visited Doug in England this summer. I am glad to meet a great member of the pottery blog community.
