Fufu is my cat.
I had made this mug and was sitting waiting for inspiration to arrive. Then I started going through my blackberry photos and found a pic of a young Fufu...so that's what is on the mug.
I use it all the time for tea.
Buff Stoneware, thrown, white slipped, painted with underglazes and clear glaze on top.
This is the pic, that the mug was based on:
not a nature born portrait painter obviously but I like it and every time I see it reminds me of fufu
