New mug with a natural rim.  

New pottery mug with a natural rim by Jenny Hoople of Authentic Arts

The natural rim on my new line of handmade mugs is more subtle than the rims of my one-of-a-kind bowls.  Imperfect enough for you to feel the rhythm and flow of the earth as you sip, but not so broken as to cause steaming hot tea to spill over onto your shirt.  An important distinction.

Pinched from 375 grams of wet clay, I think I have just made my perfect mug.  To add a handle or not to add a handle?  That is the question.
