6/365: Cat mug.

6. cat mug

This mug, which I presume my mom found at a thrift store or yard sale, is a perfect coffee-drinking mug. It has a large capacity, and what other beverage (at least among the beverages that you drink out of a mug rather than a pub glass) would you want to drink in such quantities?

The handles of handmade mugs are always tricky. Some are far too small for the vessels they accompany; others are not shaped to adequately accommodate the human hand despite being made by same. The handle on this mug is stout enough to match the body of the mug, yet thin enough to fit comfortably in the hand. The cat painting on the outside — reminiscent, to me, of the pencil illustrations of Ben Shahn — is just gravy.
