After cleaning, ready for boxes





Here are the same cups, all ready for boxing. Shown also are the second load. This time the Ame-yu was too thin which prevented nice white glaze runs. Argh! Oh well, practice makes perfect?

My neighbor came over yesterday and said that the cups all laid out like that looked delicious, good enough to eat. She’s now my favorite person, for obvious reasons.

When all was said and done (including a disturbing amount of hammering), I had 97 sets of 2 cups each (large and small), plus 24 extra short cups, which the customer decided to buy in addition to the original order. Yes!
