A while back, I read a discussion on a pottery blog (sorry, no idea which) about using a ceramic tumbler for beer. Huh! I hate drinking beer from a can and always transfer my Medalla into a glass. I decided to give the “beer in a ceramic tumbler” concept a try and loved it! Problem was that my tumblers, though perfect for a glass of juice or water, were just a tad too small for my full 10 ounces of beer. Nick was always happy to pour me my beer, and “thoughtfully” managed to quickly take care of the superfluous liquid…

The solution was obvious: throw a larger tumbler! I finally got around to the task the other day, and am quite happy with the result. To Nick’s dismay, even accounting for clay shrinkage during firing, my tumbler should hold a FULL can of Medalla quite nicely…
