What's that on my wheelhead???
Why, it's a fine slipware mug by Doug Fitch, also known in Trans-Atlantic circles as Santa Doug. I had the good fortune of being matched up in the Blogger Secret Santa Project with Mr. Fitch, of Hollyford in Devon, UK.
The mug arrived Saturday, via Royal Mail, and has since been shown off at the Sunday morning services of the Church of Coffee Obsession in Woods Hole and is now holding my morning coffee in the studio. Thank you, Doug. A fine addition to our kitchen mug cabinet.
By the way, there is out there at least one potter who is thinking that Santa forgot him. Never fear. Santa was waylaid by the holidays ... but he will keep all of his appointed rounds.
