When Your Apartment Becomes Your Studio

Had more work to do in the studio last night, but was hungry... so I thought I'd take it home with me so I could eat and work in the comfort of my own place. There is a reason potters don't work out of their apartment! I was standing up, pulling messy handles at the kitchen sink~

Trimming my cup on the other countertop~

Slipping & scoring all my "coffee beans" at my dining table~
(& no, I didn't make the plate the beans are on~ it's by "Mara" out of Mexico. I do love the design though... all nature scenes & animals... I have a complete set & each piece is different.)

Applying the beans~

And~ the semi-finished piece.

 Still need to trim & clean a bit then off to the kiln. If it doesn't blow up in the kiln, or suffer some sort of glazing mishap... I'll post the finished work in a couple of weeks.
Have a great day everyone & thanks for visiting!

That is such an original piece, Becky... I haven't seen anything like it before! Can't wait to see it finished!

A perfect mug for your morning brew! PS What a mess!

What an original looking coffee mug! Very cute idea! Hope it lasts through the kiln part! My fingers are crossed!
