Coffee Break vol. #4

Once again a little cup from the cupboard. This was a gift from my potter friend Mark Hewitt. It was made by his former apprentice, Lara O'Keefe. I've never met Ms. O'Keefe but it is a fine little cup that I usually have to wrestle from the clutches of one of my girls. It's handle is very different from Linda Christianson's in that it is more round in profile, comfort in a different form. It has a whimsical "bud" pattern done in slip trailed Avery kaolin, would be my guess. Thank you, again, Mark(and Lara).
