Long Trousers

Not to be confused with "The Wrong Trousers", one of my favorite Wallace and Gromit movie. Today was our first proper autumn-like day...bright sun, not too hot and by this evening I was enjoying a delightful chill. This is my time of year!
Here's a photo of the road heading into my studio. This is close to the end of a mile long and very rough dirt road. It makes for a nice, quiet spot.

Beth and I got some more wood organized today and we did some clean up around the property. After she headed home I started putting handles on these mugs. Over the years my standard mugs have evolved into what we would have called a 20 ounce beer mug at Winchcombe. These are a more reasonable size and are inspired by Nicky Cymrot's request...I also made a few for Pam Gallant...she likes an older (squat, I'd call it) version of the stein I make.

I'll finish handles tomorrow and start slipping and glazing...it'll be an abbreviated work day as it is poker night!
