I got my big order complete! I’m very happy with how it all turned out. The woman’s request was for mugs that had a thick lip and handle - usually my habit is to try to make mugs as light and thin as I can, as I receive lots of complements about the weight of my mugs. It felt strange at first to hold back a bit with the ‘pulls’ and to leave a little more weight to the walls but, ahem, *cough cough*, “testing” out one of the extra mugs (I made 10 of each) for the last few mornings, I must say that I really enjoy the feel of it. 'Must not keep the mug, must not keep the mug…'
All in all, I’m very happy with how this order turned out - from the amount of time she gave me (a month and a half) to trying something new and liking it. The order was; 6 mugs for her, 6 mugs for her parents, 4 koi mugs, a platter, and dory boat for her husband’s parents.
