I first met Betty Woodman in 1971 in Antella, Italy. Betty and her husband George had just recently bought a small, stone house perched on a hillside overlooking olive groves with dreamlike Florence in the distance. Betty's studio was under the house. It was very simple and small with a treadle wheel and basic shelving.
As has been our tradition at this time of year, Jim and I wanted to share our favorite mugs with you. These are not new mugs you are looking at or mugs you could buy in a store today, but mugs we have been living with for many years now.

Enhance Your Work with Interactive Pigments. Georgie's Interactive Pigments are versatile ceramic pigments that create different results with each clay or glaze you pair them with. You can apply a solid coat under a glaze or use a wipe-back technique to produce antiqued finishes or enhance texture. You can also use Interactive Pigments over raw glazes (dry but unfired) for majolica techniques at cone 6.
