As a beverage-centric person, I like to not only have the right beverage, but I like to have the right vessel. Be it cup, mug, tumbler, crock or other - Size does matter. Lets start with the morning coffee. Personally I like a cup that is on the large side. I like to enjoy a big cup and have enough room for ample milk. I prefer a short and fat vs. tall and thin. The squatter cup is definitely more stable. I admit I have had my fair share of spills.
This is a new color combo I just tried out. Nice matt finish on the bottom feels good. These came out of the kiln this morning.
I generally make a 11oz and hefty 14oz+ mug. They are very stable and feel nice on the lip and smooth on my fingers. I also like a special cup with no handle at all. There is something nice about a round cup to warm your hands without the distraction of a handle.
Over the years I have made a variety of cups for different purposes. These were for teacher gifts from 2008 at Sousa Elementary school.
