I'm not sure how he'd work as a functional mug, but I really like him as-is!
I hope you keep him as a prototype even without the booze-hole.

I plan on throwing the basic peanut shape on a wheel next time to get more symmetry. I think the facial features need to be thinner.

I was hoping for lots of relief in the sculpt instead of the traditional cylinder.


Maybe you could try starting with a cylinder and building it up at the top & bottom to make the peanut shape? And I'd think that making the facial features thinner would make them more fragile, maybe you could put them in lower relief if you want the features to look lighter? And how many parts are you planning on making the mold? I'd think you'd need a 5 part mold, and maybe even more, to make something with that kind of relief.

why am I cutting it and excavating it if I am going to use a slip mold? Does it need to be hollow to be a sculpt master?

Hey Monkeyman, it's great to now put a face with the name!

That mug sculpt is great, and the unique design is what I like most. It'll make one of the cooler mugs out there, and I hand it to you - doing it all yourself.

Monkeyman, you may get some tips from my mug making thread:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=18329&forum=7&73

Yet to complete the thread though, but it's good for the stage you're at and the questions you are asking.

Hope it helps in some way.
