Cups are the most important item a potter makes. I've always maintained that if you can make a good cup that people will use every day then you have put your business card in their hand each and every day. I love to make cups and I especially liked a trimmed foot ring. It takes more time but as my dear old dad used to say "It's what you do when you don't have to that makes all the difference!"
Here is a display of some of our cups in the kitchen. The cupboards are full of the working cups that we are more apt to use on a daily basis. It is often quite embarrassing to find we have both brought 4 or 5 cups each out to the studio. A week later things are growing in the cups.
