Not everyone's cuppa T.




I have always thought it a privledge to be invited into the AKAR Gallery's Yunomi Show. It is awesome to be in the company of so many fine makers. I thought I was going to let them down this year as I had lost my rough edge with this e-ware. A friend has offered the use of the gas kiln for a firing so I made a few this afternoon. I collected the "ART" from the trimmings to make some lugs for the cups. What would a cup by me be without some kind of a handle? In previous years some people complained that I had handles on yunomi's. They are not handles! They are my signature.
Each year that I have been invited I try to make something different. I hope they are recognizable Clennell but different from last years.
