studio addiction

Hello There! I've been so busy working I 've barely had a chance to sit down and catch up. Here I am in my dirty apron. I looked down after a few hours of throwing and thought geez! I'm a mess! And below is a taste of what I am working on. This is in addition to designing new place settings and tweaking the sushi sets, I've gotten a few e-mails about the sushi sets missing from my site, sorry!! They will be back before winter ends.
Do you have a moment to answer a question?
I am designing place setting and would love your input! So, if you are setting a table or just out buying dinnerware do you prefer the sets that include:

1. dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, mug
2. dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, tea cup, saucer

Thank you for your time and input in this very important dinner table matter!

Hi! I prefer option #1, the dinner plate, salad plate, bowl and mug. It's less formal, but I don't like to fiddle around with cups and saucers. Even though I like the look of them.

But come to think of it, when all's said and done, I'd be more likely to stick my own face into a mug of coffee or tea in the morning, while offering a guests their coffee or tea in a cup with a saucer. Okay then, more formal.

I believe I'd go for option #2 and then buy some peripheral mugs for my own use.

All my dinnerware sets have option I guess that would be my answer, although that is more formal, and option 1 sounds very fun and workable also for a less formal option. Maybe offer sets that include Option 1 or Option 2...not much help, am I? (I figured I should respond, however, since you are being so kind to do the special order items that I asked for and aren't normally in your line...thank you again!)

This is definitely a good thing to question... I would go for option 1, but replace the mug with a water glass (if that is something you like to make). I typically think of a place setting having water and wine available, and reserve tea or coffee for the dessert...

If it's a casual set, #1, if it is a more formal set #2. For my nice wedding set, I went for #2. For my everyday set, I went for #1. That probably doesn't help. I do like cups with saucers though. :)

How fun!

I like... option 1!

Love mugs... cause I love coffee! Mugs are so fun for ice cream & soup too. That chunky... hearty feel in your hand.

I think with your design... you CAN NOT go wrong either way!

totally off subject... but I have been on a mad hunt for a fun butter dish!

have you done any... will you be making any?

what would be better than a butter dish with one of your fun birds!

just curious! Thanks!

thank you to everyone that responded both in the comments and via e-mail. It's been so fun to see what everyone uses and I'm loving the suggestions.

Carissa, I do have butter dishes in the works and sugar bowls and creamers - I also have platters and large serving bowls. fun!

Thanks so much!
