Stylized black and white image of Kurt rising from a bluish purple band; wind blowing through his long hair and a bowl spinning above his upturned left hand.  Titled The Hairy Potter with his motto: "If you don't see what you want, he can probably make one materialize for you."

Beverages need a glorious hand-made vehicle too.  The examples of “pints” shown here demonstrate variations in glazing I’ve developed to hold whatever you like to drink.


You’ll notice that the cups range in size and whether they have a handle or not.

A stocky cup with a slightly curved lip for easy drinking, the line moves straight down to the shoulder then narrowing at the waist.  Mostly dark purple with lighter purple/blue highlights at the lip and foot.

16 ounce Pint

Kurt in a purple shirt and bandana holding a just thrown pint on a bat that has a wavy pattern on the surface.  A "bat" is a platform for easily removing wet pots from the potter's wheel.

The Hairy Potter holding  a chattered "Pint"

A stocky cup with a slightly curved lip for easy drinking, the line moves straight down to the shoulder then narrowing at the waist.  Mostly dark purple with lighter purple/blue highlights at the lip and foot.

18 ounce "Pint"  

A three-quarter view of a handle-less cup.  A slight indentation below the rounded lip to allow for easy drinking.  The line narrows from the broad shoulder down the waist to a wider foot that aids in stability.  The surface is chattered which accentuates the mostly dark purple streaking to lighter purple near the foot.  The foot is a sapphire blue.

16 ounce "Pint"

A tall slender cup with a slightly curved lip for easy drinking, the line moves straight to the shoulder but quickly narrows down through the waist to the foot.  The glaze is a mottled light "barbelized" gray/green.

24 ounce "Pint"

A two-thirds view of a handle-less cup.  A broad opening with a rounded lip.  A subtle narrowing curve from below the lip to the foot.  The inside is white with an oil-spot (speckled) blue surface on the outside.  Dark cobalt blue at the foot.

14 ounce "pint"

A tall mug with a handle - a wider base than lip.  Lighter purple lip graduating dark to light purple from top to bottom.

24 ounce tankard

A tall slender cup with a slightly flared lip; the gently narrowing line moves down from the lip, through the slender shoulder, the waist to the foot. The inside is bright while.  The outside surface is chattered which gives the glaze a stiated look from light creamy to dark brown from the lip to the foot.

20 ounce chattered "pint"

Six mugs with handles are shown.  Three are a side view to demonsrate the shape which has a wider belly and narrower lip to help retain the heat of the beversage.  The other three are in three-quarter view to display the inside which is white.  The outside is an oil spot blue, or mottled denim blue with darker blue accents at the rim and foot.

14 oz +or- oil spot blue mugs

 A series of six coffee cups.  They all have handles of varying sizes, are wider at the rim, and range in colors: teal, purply blue, and augamarine.  The insides display Kurt's signature cosmic glazing technique.

Coffee cups ranging from 6 to 10 ounces.

Two cups with flared lips to allow for easy drinking, wider shoulders that increase capacity, and narrow waists for easy handling.  Dark purple/blue at the rims fading to lighter purple toward the feet.
