Royal Wedding Exclusive!

First Pictures of the Royal Wedding Coffee mugs.
These are going to be either given to school children in the area
or sold to raise school funds.
In total I have 3 orders that add up to 250 mugs.
The Royal Wedding is Two weeks today.
I've been putting in some long Hours and Marion
has been helping me in the evenings.
We are working on Two designs
One that has the slip sanded away leaving slip
in the wording to heigh light it.
and the second with wax resisit for the slip
and wax resist again for the glaze.
They are starting to come out of the kiln now so they should all
be done by this time next week
Certainly by the 27th at the latest.
