Coffee with a friend by JeffMargolin Coffee with a friend by JeffMargolin
The only way to drink coffee (for me). I make one of these once in a blue moon - usually for my own use, maybe for a good friend...

In my personal utopia, every useful thing would be a piece of art.
I love that it's both highly artistic and yet absolutely functioning.
The carving is so stunning; I especially love the ribbon-like pattern.

I am with you on the personal utopia, striving to get there...so far, at least my coffee mug is--thanks to Jeff :)

Thank you for the wonderful comment on Jeff's piece.

Oh, that's too bad because it really doesn't work for tea...I have another hand carved ceramic mug from another friend for that ;)

Cool.

One thing I do have though; a genuine Viking drinking horn (made of real horn :excited:) which I occasionally drink cider from.

Yup, although being horn-shaped I can't put it down until I've finished all mah cider. (and it hold a fair amount) :lol:

Lovely. The clay looks like its still wet! But the top is glazed so I know it's not... still... It looks like you could still (accidentally) carve into it!

Man, the texture on this must take a while, I can see why you don't do cups like this very often!

:iconjeffmargolin:
JeffMargolin Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2008   Artisan Crafter
um, it was wet. I didn't wait enough for it to dry after washing it in water, very evident in the right-side picture. It takes Jeff probably 6 hours just to carve it, so he makes them for him and sometimes for a friend.

lucky me :eyes:

Frost-indri Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
But they clay had been FIRED right? Cause that's what I mean by wet. That it's still in the leather hard green-ware stage.

And yes, lucky you. :p

:iconjeffmargolin:
JeffMargolin Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2008   Artisan Crafter
Yes, yes, I know what you meant...of course it's been fired--and even to a normal cone for a change (you know Jeff's work is usually fired very low). I was just playing with the words...so kill me :D

btw, Tiki is my capuccino and tea vessel :)
