Fired Saturday.
The results didn't exactly produce an Irish jig of jubilation.

First i ought-a point out that even tho there is a large crack alongside the face, the cup doesn't leak and is perfectly usable. Altho, i realize the design is poor, for the rim leaves little room to drink beverages. (With a bit of dexterity tho, one can get a sip or two of coffee.)
Taking all that into consideration, what upsets me most is that while the face is a perfectly acceptable color -- it leaves the poor fellow looking quite sallow. I don't know how to correct for that. And while he looks a bit sallow in morning light, at night, with house lighting, he looks like a mellow-yellow soft drink gone flat.
Most disappointing.

Ahhh, we all have those moments Chae. It's just one of those things that comes along with making work out of clay. I had a long throwing session the other afternoon and I was fighting the clay. I kept trying to tell myself to relax and the clay would take notice. I finally had to call it a day.

I'm rather fond of your little fellow. It reminds me a bit of an Appalachian moonshine mug. :D A project that I'm going to try to do in the near future.
