Would you be surprised if I told you most of my cups start with less than a pound of porcelain? It's about the right amount of clay (for me) to contain about 12 ounces of volume in a tall or squatty shape, and these get a lovely handbuild "C" shape handle which feels pretty trendy to me.
Get a grip folks! Select Fuck This or Fuck That, for all your fucking needs! Hotza!
