anglerAll my anglerfish mugs are female. The thing is, when male angler fish are born, they float helplessly through the dark ocean depths until they bump into a female angler, then they bite onto her and she forms skin around them.
They become one animal, the male losing all autonomy. When the female is ready to release eggs, she send s hormone to the male who then releases sperm.
All of my angler fish mugs come with at least one little male attached. Ahhh, deep-ocean love!

lava monsterAH. The Lava Monster. This finish is amazing looking, but takes quite awhile to accomplish. I start by using a seed pod to get the texture. I build out the face, adding the horns teeth and eyes. I then paint a colored slip over the whole mug and wait for that to dry. I then paint a black slip of that, leaving the color in the recesses. Then touch up with the base color. I only glaze the inside leaving the bright contrast between the black and colored slips on the outside.

The designs above have a lot of variety. For example, the spiders are happy or angry, crabs are crabby or maybe jovial.
