Imagine Peace Mug & American Hippie

Hello, Friends!   I'm thrilled that the "American Hippie" page on FB posted one of my Imagine Peace mug photos today.  At first I couldn't figure out why I was getting so many inquiries in my Etsy shop, here on my website and on my own FB page.  Finally, someone sent me the photo and I understood.  "American Hippie" has over 170,000 followers!  Wow!

After the 3rd firing...

Better views of pots with the decorations after 3rd firing.  Can you see how the designs have muted and turned either sepia brown on the blue/green and plum on the pink and purple?  (Posted on my FB page 10-30-16).

Sorry for poor indoor shots, it was cold outside and didn't want to risk pots cracking after coming out of the kiln. Here are some of the travel mugs with their lids.

A few kiln shots after the kiln cooled on this batch's last (3rd) firing--minus the broken plate.

What a shock!

Sometimes bad things happen in the kiln and we get shock when opening the lid. This happened this week...I was very upset because it ruined Laura's set! So, I shipped her soup mug anyway so she can enjoy that while I make her a new plate. Cannot take anything for granted in ceramics! I've never seen a plate crack like this before! Wowza!
