I was in the studio the other day and happened to look over at a shelf that is way up near the ceiling and mostly obscured by a heating duct and saw these groups of various mugs all stacked up in groups of two and threes. I am not sure why, but it just struck me that this is how pots are used and stored, certainly our cupboards are filled with bowls, cups, mugs and dished all stacked up according to size and those used most frequently toward the front. It just seemed natural to photograph this pair of Persian blue and underglaze slip mugs just as they were stored, intended as a pair and nestled in to each other waiting to get used and stacked just as pots have been for thousands of years.
And for a little something that has absolutely nothing to do with pottery, have a chuckle with Abbott & Costello and Jonah and the Whale
