Amazing yunomi, with a tactile surface pattern that makes it entrancing to hold and drink from. Great for whiskey sipping.

Making more Blue Bird Jars for the next firing. These make great salt or sugar jars. Also nice for jewelry.

Blue Bird Jar. Soda Fired Stoneware Pottery
I'm finishing up pots in the studio today. Had to take a break for tea and cookies though. Ha. It's great being my own boss. This is a favorite mug of mine. I have some similar ones in the online shop. Have a great day!
