I love hosting cocktail parties where I allow my guests to select the perfect cup for their beverage of choice. As my cup collection is vast and varied, I enjoy watching people touch and feel each piece until they find the right one. For some, it is the maker. For others, it is the feel. Some choose based solely on surface design. Regardless, we have all learned how we interact with the daily routine of drinking. This workshop will focus on making drinking vessels of all kinds… from coffee mugs to whiskey cups. Special focus will be on mark making, surface design, slip and glaze application, and other finishing methods. Each participant is strongly encouraged to bring their favorite mug/cup for their morning beverage ritual, as we will start each day with ‘Coffee talk’.
