What Size are You? 8oz? - 12oz? - 14oz?

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.
