From time to time I like to make slab constructed cups. It's a relaxing way to work on the basics with a familiar form. Foot, body, lip, joining and design element. These are all details that in a small object like a cup really stand out. When done well the cup is one that is hard to put down and becomes a favorite.
I can make the same form over and over and each one will have it's own feel and character. I enjoy the subtleties that can be developed in the form of a cup and when I am making them I am always on the look out for that special one that I just can't put down.
