Carved/Pressed Texture Slab Mug

Roll 1/4″ thick slab.

Use your stamps or found objects or something from the bins!

Think about:
Pattern and repetition
Designing “in the round” (to be seen from all sides)
Functionality – smooth enough?  Be sure to keep all textures to the outside of the mug!
How will the handle relate?
