Today was a horse day here at the desertNOVA corral. The 2 mugs that were posted today are from the last firing and show the different effects of 2 different clay bases. The blue colored mug is a 20oz. mug made out of regular stoneware with lots of sand in the mix. The matching galloping horse is done with a porcelain mix. I personally like the light mug with the feather design on the bottom. The finish is very smooth and the glazes are clear and well defined, although the electric blue on the first galloping horse is rather catchy. Both can be seen on www.etsy.com/desertnova.
