mug of the moment…


Alleghany Meadows; 2oo5

The big move had me pack up my too big pots collection and make some decisions.  I have all my pots with me, mostly, but only very few are out of their cardboard boxes.

I allowed myself the time in my packing process to select ‘cups and mugs for now’; ‘plates and bowls for now’ etc… About half a dozen of each and they have gone into pretty heavy rotation.

I’m quite liking the simplicity of selection each morning and getting to know better certain pots that have been in my life for awhile now.

Above is a mug that Ghany made @ Penland during our Spring Concentration in ‘o5.  It’s loaded w/ sentiment because of that association – but also one hell of a mug.  The negative space in the handle is just loaded w/ tension and dicipline.  I didn’t quite capture it this morning  – but that first tuck in of the handle comes ever so close to contacting the mug  – yet does not.  I could have caught a sliver of daylight poking thru in that spot – had i a bit more coffee running thru me.

Whatya want at these prices?
