The Latte Log mugs made it out of the kiln.They'll be given away this weekend to two customers who were the first to complete a challenge in drinking 41 coffee drinks off our Coffee Truck menu. Inspired by the Grog Log at the Tonga Hut, they had a year to finish the task. These customers rushed through it to make it to the end first (in four months)- the first place finisher had 9 drinks in one weekend- plus a few more shots of espresso after the completion. In any case, stoked to give these away to folks this weekend. Enough story, here's what they look like: (I made two):
The Coffee Truck on the mug:
Mug 2: a bit taller, w/ different design.
I double dipped the mug into the glaze, thinking I would get some kind of "coffee spilling" look. It came out interesting, though not perfect. The glaze gets very glossy when thicker, wasn't expecting such a different look to it.
The mini-Paco Coconut came out of the kiln as well. This was a hand thrown piece w/ the silhouette of my wife's 14 year chihuahua. He's missing part of one of his ears due to a scrap w/ our other dog over an empty jar of peanut butter. I took the blame, but it really wasn't my fault. It's almost too small to drink out of, so it'll be Paco's honorary mug at the home bar.
It spells out "Paco"...
Interior has same glaze as exterior on top of white porcelain slip. Cool effect:
A little further progress on the Moai Dug-out mug. Cut harder edges and added more details:
Thanks for lookin'.
