Moustaches Aren't Just For Movember...

By Thomas Birnie, Dec 1 2012 02:00PM

Moustaches aren’t just for Movember, they are a way of life. Moustachioed men enjoy drinking tea as much as the next man. It is a pastime and shouldn’t be concluded with the sensation of wet facial bristles. During the festivities of Christmas month, moustaches will continue to be stained; unnecessarily. The solution: 450g balls of red clay with a honey glaze.



Now for the science:


Slip:

Ball Clay


Glaze:

Red Clay

Ball Clay

Lead Bisilicate Frit


900°C bisque temp

1080°C glaze temp



These dandy cups (approx. 150ml volume) are the first batch I’ve made and I hope to make more. Cups of greater volume for bigger hands and… ones for giants.
