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!

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