I haven't been able to get into my studio much in the last few weeks. However, I have been spending time looking at various mugs. Below are four mugs that I use all the time. By the choice of the hand critic these appear to be functional favorites. The criteria seems to be the way they feel in my hand and the way the rim feels when I drink. A handle has to be large enough to hold, but it also has to work when I cradle a mug in the palm of my hand and loop my thumb through the handle.
I love the looks of the mug below, but I have never enjoyed drinking from it. I find the base of the handle feels weak and the lip feels fat. I don't regret buying it, but I don't think I have ever regretted buying a mug. It's funny how small differences can make such a huge difference!
I made a spinach and shrimp quiche a few days ago. I made it from leftovers from a few days before, just added a bit more cheese, milk and eggs. It disappeared quickly!
I have been trying to take selfies! I'm not sure about this; I need longer arms! I need to consult my manual but I think I can do a delayed action on this camera. Now that I've had it for several years I should begin to explore what it can do!
SURPRISE!! It's snowing again. It's supposed to turn to rain later on then back to snow which will make for some interesting driving during rush hour. I am soooooo glad that I don't have to drive to get to my work!
There is one good thing about all this snow. The ground will be absorbing a lot of water which hopefully will lessen the chances of drought this summer. I'll grasp any straw to feel a bit positive this winter!
This is late, but since Kim says it's okay I'm going to link this Sunday Ceramics. Go over and take a look.
Stay warm and dry or cool and dry....whichever is best.
As always, thanks for stopping by......*s*
