Mountain Mugs, 2014
by Emily Rose Bourne
Thrown and carved porcelain stained with commercial underglaze, various glazes. Cone 10 gas oxidation.
Each holds approximately 20 fl. oz, great for enormous quantities of coffee or tea. They also make wonderful beer mugs!
Fresh out of the kiln this morning!

Mugshot Monday with Cassidy Seidler!
When asked why he was gazing into the stationary shop, this little pink dragon responded with some gestures that I can only assume meant “Look at all of these people having babies! Getting married! Writing to their Great Aunt Ednas and long lost best friends! Think of how lovely getting a letter is.”
Letters are nearly as lovely as you, my dear dragon.
There are some exciting and adorable things happening on my other blog, Itty Bitty Dragons. Check it out when you get a chance, it’s full of sunshine and smiles!
Sorry for the inactivity. Thesis and some personal stuff has gobbled up my life recently, but I’ll have oodles of images to share with you by the end of the semester.
Hey, MECA/Portland Maine friends!
A bit of a weird request, but I’ve been experimenting with some new surfacing processes, and one of my favorites (pictured here) requires hair, and plenty of it. It is not raku, but a painting technique I’ve been developing for ceramic work.
If you have a bunch of hair in your hairbrush or have another way of collecting it, please consider donating it to me.
PLEASE, only clean hair from your head (and relatively lint/dust bunny free)!
Contact me if you feel like helping. I need the hair pretty soon for my work. Thanks to those of you who have already helped out!
