The tea set is coming along. Somehow I ended up with nine mugs and, then, randomly ended up with nine plate circles. But then I turned one plate into a bowl so I guess it's service for eight with one extra mug for breakage. These plates look like nothing more than first grade, clay project ashtrays (remember when it was okay for a kid to make a clay ashtray at school?) but I still like them.
I stamped a few of the plates with cool wood stamps I bought in India. I'm curious how the stamped images will look glazed.
And here's a question for you. I think tea sets need saucers but this set has mugs rather than tea cups. Should I make saucers? What about bowls? I do still plan to make a tea pot and maybe some sort of small platter...
And here's an answer for you. Someone asked how big the mugs are--they're approximately the size of a shot glass. The plates are about 5 inches in diameter.
And for those of you who might of noticed, I TOTALLY fell off the wagon on my kitchen gadget posting theme in April but check out these cookie racks. They are excellent--I hope the clay washes off okay.
My gosh this week seems to be lasting forever....here's to Friday coming soon!
