Puzzle jugs and espresso mugs


Here's the crazy puzzle jug all slipped up. Don't know if it'll make this firing, the kiln's almost full.






These are some little espresso mugs I made today. They fill all the little gaps a treat. Brief tonight because I'm pooped and I've still lots of other admin stuff to do. Sweet dreams.

That jug is splendid.

Hmmm... i could make some little mugs, couldn't I...

(the word verification thing keeps changing it's font - sometimes easy sometimes difficult... but then i am hungover, so they're all hard at the moment.)

Hey I like the little cups. And the puzzle jug is a treat. My customers would have a fit over that. Maybe I'll try and make one or a puzzle mug. The diagram helped a lot, I never was sure how they worked.
Hope the loading is going okay.

I've just found a bit of sky !!

do they come in a box with a picture on so you can put it together yourself.

That is an inspiring jug. Really fun. There's not enough time for me to try one for my upcoming firing, but since you included instructs, giving away its secret, maybe I'll give it a try next go 'round.

I once saw a teapot made by George Ohr, that was filled through the bottom. there was no lid (a closed form), The spout came out of the base so that when it was upside down the tea wouldn't come out when being filled. I wish I could send a drawing...oh well, maybe I'll post it on my blog someday. Great pots.
