Taking An Idea One Step Further

I've spent time in the studio recently making revisions to some familiar shapes and ideas. It's one of the reasons I enjoy going to the studio. Even if I'm working on something I've regularly made before, it's easy to improve, tweak and adjust some of the elements to make it into something new. 

I've revised the shape of my mugs. These are narrow at the top and wide at the bottom. I still feature a seam line and button. The narrow top will help hold the temperature of a hot drink.

I've had a custom request for pie dishes. I based the design on some of the baking dishes I've made recently. Here, I started with the large deep dish size  (9 inches diameter x 3 inches tall) and then decided to make a smaller personal pie size (5 inches diameter x 2 inches tall) version as well. I can see a beautiful quiche or blueberry pie in the large size. A baked brie might work well in the smaller size!

I like to use a recipe stand in my own kitchen. So I though I'd create one in the studio. I wanted it to be able to hold a cookbook, iPad or simple recipe card. I alternate between all three when I'm cooking from a recipe. I'd like to hear if you currently use a recipe stand in your kitchen or might consider using one in the future.

It's fun to see the progress of forms I've used over the years. My studio is the place where I make my ideas turn into a piece of pottery for others to enjoy and use. It's my happy place.
