Just to let you know the difference in sizing for the mugs... My original mug, if I don't cast it too thick, holds 8 oz. per the dinnerware industry standards (to the rim). The new mug is about 18% larger. Why 18% you ask??? Well, because the porcelain shrinks so much (18%) I was asking a few people over the years how large they'd like the mug. I showed them the mold for the original mug. They liked the size it starts out as the finished size. Wha-la! That is how I decided to make the larger mug 18% larger. How much it will hold is an unknown at the moment. (I should be able to start casting them tonight after work! YAY!!!)
