This is the mug my first born made me for Christmas!! His teacher is a potter and offered the kids pottery lessons during thier recess time. My son (to my great joy) cranked out quite a pile of lovely things! and so thoughtfully saved his first project for ME!! (the other things, he gifted away to his grandparents and I forgot to take pictures.) It is so fun to see his work improve with each piece...I really hope he makes more!!
